On 26 November the first screening of the 8th PCI Film Series will take place. The film Human Flow (Ai Weiwei, 2017) will be shown.
In the PCI Film Series a selection of films, shown monthly, that draw on a variety of different contexts in our postcolonial world. The series is organized annually and invites all interested in our European postcolonial present and the representation of its political, cultural and aesthetic realities and challenges. Human Flow will be introduced by Prof. Sandra Ponzanesi (Media and Culture Studies).
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. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact.
