Refugee Week: Film Screening “Human Flow” (MK)

June 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Human Flow (2 hours 20 minutes)
A film by Ai Weiwei

More than 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war, the greatest displacement since World War II. Filmmaker Ai Weiwei examines the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Over the course of one year in 23 countries, Weiwei follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretch across the globe, including Afghanistan, France, Greece, Germany and Iraq.

Before the feature film, we will be showing two very short films, co-produced by OU colleagues:

They call us Maids (10 mins)
Produced and Directed by: Leeds Animation Workshop (a women’s collective)
OU Academic Dr Amy Charlesworth was involved in this film and her colleague, Dr Leah Clark, will introduce the film

An asylum seeker’s story: Collective leadership in diverse communities (10 mins)
Director: Joseph Mannion
Producers: Kate Dangerfield, Vita Terry, Andrew Jolly
Introduced by Dr Vita Terry from the OU
