Ai Weiwei’s THE HUMAN FLOW @ The Museum of Fine Arts
Dec 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

On the short list for Best Documentary Feature at the 2018 Academy Awards!

Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change, and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic documentary by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to the massive human migration. Captured over the course of one year in 23 countries, the film witnesses its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter, and justice. A visceral work of cinema that begs the question: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?
