Ithaca Welcomes Refugees Presents: Human Flow
Thursday, September 20, 7PM (Cinemapolis)
Join us when Ithaca Welcomes Refugees hosts a screening of HUMAN FLOW, the breathtaking epic film journey about the global refugee crisis by Ai Wewei. The documentary gives powerful visual expression to the mass human migration of over 65 million people currently displaced around the world due to famine, climate change, and war. It illuminates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly intimate human impact. Filmed over the course of a year in 23 countries, Human Flow witnesses urgent human stories of the displaced in pursuit of safety, shelter, and justice.
IWR presents the film as part of Welcoming America’s national week of events, Welcoming Week, to raise awareness about the benefits of welcoming refugees and immigrants to our communities. At a time when compassion, tolerance, and trust are needed more than ever, the film asks one of the questions that will define this century: Can our global society move beyond fear, isolation, and self-interest to cultures of openness and respect for humanity?
