Description

Film Screening: Human Flow

Mayfair Theatre, Ottawa
Monday, April 23

5:30 PM

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. Captured in 23 countries over the course of one year, this epic film journey by internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration, and documents the courage, endurance, and unassailable spirit of the displaced.

Join Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Ottawa for a screening of this powerful film. The screening will be proceeded by a short discussion about refugee and migration issues with experts and aid workers from Doctors Without Borders, who will share their stories of responding to the needs of refugees, migrants and internally displaced people in difference locations across the globe.

Watch the trailer here. Information about the Mayfair Theatre is available here.
