"Human Flow" is a 2017 documentary film by artist Ai Weiwei, a heartbreaking and compelling visual exploration of the global refugee crisis in 23 countries (including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico and Turkey). The film details the stories of migrants who reach foreign shores and borders in search of safety, shelter and compassion.
