HUMAN FLOW

“It’s not a refugee crisis. It’s a human crisis.” - Ai Weiwei

“Captured in twenty-three countries over the course of one year, this epic film journey by internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration and documents the courage, endurance, and unassailable spirit of the displaced."

Upon invitation from Doctors without Borders a friend and I viewed a free screening at a theatre of a two-hour-fifteen-minute documentary called HUMAN FLOW.

Two representatives from Doctors without Borders introduced the movie and it was followed by a talk-back time. Both were women doctors who spent time in Iraq and Rwanda. After leaving the theatre my friend commented: “all of us attending this viewing tonight will NEVER be the same.” How true! I felt exactly the same way.

I am aware that we all know of the plight of refugees through the news or even journeying with them in a personal way. I strongly encourage and invite you to view it yourselves, preferably at a theatre if you can. It can be found on line by googling HUMAN FLOW or, for those who have Netflix, it can be found at https://www.netflix.com/ca/title/80206691
