Film by the Chinese artist-activist has been hailed as a masterful and moving response to contemporary global migration’s concerns, disruptions, revelations.


Genre: Film, Viewing

Venue: Barbican Centre, London, England

Time: December 8-18 2017

Curators & Sponsors: Film produced by Amazon Studios.

Production: Directed and written by Ai Weiwei, one of China’s most internationally known artists, also recognized as a prodigious activist, architect, curator, and filmmaker.

Description: Ai Weiwei’s epic film journey gives powerful visual expression to recent foreceable movement of 65 million people from their homes, reportedly the greatest human displacement since the aftermath of the Second World War. The film follows a set of connected human stories of migration, over a single year, in 23 countries including Bangladesh, France, Greece, Iraq, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Ai Weiwei poses a number of questions throughout his visual and narrative piece, especially those concerning the ability of now irreversibly global societies to find ways to acknowledge the human details of life undergoing trauma, violence, isolation, the fear of others, projection, and self-interest.
