TOM's Film Club: Human Flow (12A) on Monday 2nd July 2018

Shot across an astonishing twenty-three countries, Human Flow is artist Ai Weiwei’s panoramic document of the global refugee crisis.

Filmed with world-spanning breadth, but never losing sight of individual human stories, this is a visually arresting work that brings new insights and compassion for its subjects. Making extensive use of drone photography’s ability to show vast scales, this film provides insights into the plight of the 65 million people currently displaced in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iraq, Turkey and more. Straying beyond the headlines, Human Flow also offers a clear picture of the forces causing this unrooting.

Cutting through the saturation of news images of the crisis, Weiwei brings an artist’s eye to helping us understand the scale and human cost so we can see and understand anew.

This is an urgent, deep soak in the current refugee crisis. There has been no dearth of documentaries about this topic, but this one comes closest to understanding the totality of the issue”
Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
