[It] does not present much new information about the current refugee crisis but it does allow the artist/activist to present his own views on this subject, and give voice to some of those swept up in that human tide.
At 140 minutes, Human Flow runs a little long, and there are a few too many superfluous interludes. But that doesn't stop it from being a very moving piece that will go down as one of 2017's most important documentaries.
The camera in Human Flow lingers on people as they walk, hold their young children, tell their stories, and often cry, and it becomes incredibly difficult for the audience not to address their reactions to it.
Full of people, places and data, the film aspires to be a global vision of the refugee problem... Despite this, and you may know why, it does not have the same impact as the artists's other work. [Full review in Spanish]
Ai Weiwei's epic study of the ever-worsening refugee crisis was shot in 23 countries over the course of a year, and while it differs from many this is nevertheless among the most moving and devastating chronicles of life you'll see in 2018.
