Description

Film Screening: Human Flow

The Cinematheque, Vancouver
Tuesday, July 24

6:00 PM

There are currently more than 65 million people around the world who 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 Vancouver for a screening of this important film. The screening will be proceeded by a short discussion about the many challenges people on the move encounter and the work that Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) does to address their needs in a host of settings.

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


Speakers

Courtney Bercan is a nurse from Vancouver who has worked with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) since 2015. In 2016, she worked onboard on one of MSF’s search-and-rescue vessels in the Mediterranean Sea. She describes the experience as intense and gratifying but also the most horrifying experience she has ever had. Her first field assignment with MSF was in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where she provided emergency, pediatric and malnutrition care. In Vancouver, she has worked in the downtown east side. She recently completed a Master in Global Health from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

JL Crosbie is the Director of Programs at Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Canada, where he oversees MSF’s telemedicine, e-learning and Canadian humanitarian affairs activities. He has more than 10 years field experience with MSF, leading and managing humanitarian medical and emergency interventions in Asia and Africa, including as Project Manager or Head of Mission in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria and the Central African Republic. Most recently, he worked on MSF’s emergency teams in Syria and Bangladesh.
