Event Details (RW2019)
Friday 25th January at 3pm: Human Flow (Ai Weiwei, 2017) introduced by Professor Laura Rascaroli, Film and Screen Media.
Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity? “Human Flow is an epic portrait of mass migration that understands how a lack of empathy often stems from a failure of imagination” (David Ehrlich, IndieWire).
All welcome. Organised by Department of Film & Screen Media
