Cinema 10 screens Human Flow at 7:15 p.m. on Monday, March 12, at the Roxy Theater in Potsdam.?
Directed by Ai Weiwei. This is the fifth film in the Spring 2018 Cinema 10 season.
In his largest project so far, renowned artist-director Ai Weiwei traveled to 23 countries and employed a crew of 200. Shooting vast landscapes, great swaths of humanity and tight close-ups, Ai invites viewers to expand their perspective on the plight of refugees, with the understanding that as some find safe living spaces, even more are soon to be displaced. As reviewer Ben Sachs (Chicago Reader) points out, “Ai wants viewers to think of refugee crises as a single issue facing all humanity . . .The current efforts of stable nations to host refugees aren’t enough to tackle a problem this vast.”
The Human Flow is 140 minutes long and is rated PG-13 for thematic material and disturbing images.
