Ai Weiwei examines the heart breaking and 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. The film will be introduced by Brandeis University scholar Emile Diouf.
