Screening of Human Flow (12A) and post-film discussion for Refugee Week 2018 – Reading Film Theatre, in partnership with Reading Refugee Support Group

 

Ai Weiwei’s epic film documents the staggering scale of 65 million people around the world who have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change or war. It gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration and its profoundly human impact. Though not providing political explanations or answers, Human Flow allows us “to make the leap of empathy, to understand what being a migrant is like in human terms” (Peter Bradshaw).

After the screening, there will a round table discussion in partnership with Reading Refugee Support Group with specially invited guests.

Tuesday 19 June 2018, 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm, Edith Morley Building, University of Reading

Please note that the venue for this event has changed to the Van Emden Theatre in the newly named Edith Morely Building (previously known as HUMMS), which is a short walk from Palmer Building.
