The Human Flow - Film Screening and Discussion

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. Filmmaker Ai Weiwei examines the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Over the course of one year in 23 countries, Weiwei follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretch across the globe, including Afghanistan, France, Greece, Germany and Iraq. In turn, the viewer experiences the journeys of the world's most vulnerable in their greatest time of need. 

Director Ai Weiwei will be available during a livestream, national Q&A on Sunday, April 29th at 3:30pm. Information for the Q&A will be shared after the film. A panel of local refugee leaders and supporters, including author Cindy Wu, will speak with the audience after the screening. Cindy Wu will be available to sign copies of her book as well. 

Cindy M. Wu is the author of A Better Country: Embracing the Refugees in our Midst, a study guide to help Americans think theologically and respond practically to the global refugee crisis. She also leads the Houston Refugee Voices project, which aims to tell the stories of Houston's refugee community.
