Film Screening: “Human Flow” by Ai Weiwei
Axinn Center, Room 229

More than 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 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. All are welcome. FREE.

Sponsored by: Middlebury College Museum of Art and the Department of History of Art and Architecture
