Join us at Brattleboro’s 118 Elliot Street -- for a screening of Human Flow, the
fourth feature in In-Sight's film series, “Great Pictures.”

Human Flow Film Screening Sunday, April 29th at 2:30pm

Followed directly by a webcast Q&A 4:50pm - 5:20pm


This screening is part of a nation-wide event and will be
followed by a Q&A with the artist/filmmaker, Ai Weiwei.

Over 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 the internationally renowned
artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive
human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale
of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact.
Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film
follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in
countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany,
Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey.


Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for
safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean
crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment
to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left
behind to the unknown potential of the future. Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever.

This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable
human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century:
Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and
choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?


In-Sight asks for a donation at the door of $10 with a
suggested student donation of $5. All proceeds go to
support In-Sight scholarships for participants in all its
programs that for 25 years have been offered without
regard for ability to pay.
