Event description
ShelterBox Visitor Centre is showing Human Flow - artist Ai Wei Wei's epic account of modern human migration and displacement.

About this Event

Ai Wei Wei tells how the film began after he got his passport back from Chinese authorities and went on vacation to the Greek island of Lesbos. There he saw refugees coming on shore and began shooting footage on his iPhone. The shocking experience inspired him to make a film about refugees and their harrowing journeys.

In the Director’s statement of the screening program for Venice Biennale Ai says, “Human Flow is a personal journey, an attempt to understand the conditions of humanity in our days. The film is made with deep belief in the value of human rights. In this time of uncertainty, we need more tolerance, compassion and trust for each other since we all are one. Otherwise, humanity will face an even bigger crisis.”

Visitor Centre opens at 7pm. Film starts at 7.30pm.

Admission is free. Donations welcome.
