Human Flow review – Ai Weiwei’s urgent look at the scale of the refugee crisis

Gorgeous shots in Greece, Calais and elsewhere, many filmed from drones, create a visual tone poem that proves both epic and highly human

“The international co-productions of the mid-20th century often boasted myriad shooting locations in far-flung places. Who would have guessed the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei would pick up where moguls such as Sam Spiegel left off.

Ai’s new film, Human Flow, while certainly epic in scope, is not exactly meant as entertainment. This is an urgent, deep soak in the current refugee crisis. There has been no dearth of documentaries about this topic, but this one comes closest to understanding the totality of the issue. . . . .”

I copied the above from The Guardian

    I have just finished Michael Springmann’s book suggesting that US intelligence may be orchestrating these mass migrations to weaken the EU – I just posted a review this morning at https://stuartjeannebramhall.com/2017/09/02/weapons-of-mass-migration/
