Film Screening & Discussion: Human Flow

Human Flow

Directed by Ai Weiwei
Unrated. 140 Min.
Post-Screening Discussion: 3:30 p.m.

Today, more than 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 film journey led by internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives visual expression to this massive human migration. Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey and documents the courage, endurance, and unassailable spirit of the displaced.

Join us for a post-film discussion led by Portland Meet Portland.

Organized in partnership with the Northwest Film Center and Portland Meet Portland.

Presented in conjunction with the special exhibition Common Ground: Photographs by Fazal Sheikh, 1989 – 2013.
