‘Human Flow‘ documentary by artist Ai Weiwei is an interrogation of the world’s response to this unprecedented migrant crisis. It looks at mass movement from Syria, Iraq and parts of Africa to Europe; of the Rohingya people from Myanmar to Bangladesh; from Palestine to Jordan, among others.
What we take from the film is a dispiriting network of walls and fences and the knowledge that those who have the misfortune to be on the wrong side have little recourse. While borders are ultimately arbitrary, our responsibility as human beings is not.
Human Flow is currently in theatre and available for streaming online.
