To depict his view of the global refugee crisis, Ai Weiwei used 25 camera teams in 20 countries.

The results involve many surreal scenes: tent camps erected between railways with passing Greek trains continually sounding their horns; aerial shots of perfectly symmetrical rows of tents with tiny dots in between that move around like ants; groups of white-clad Africans in Italy who seem to have escaped an art project instead of a war zone. The Chinese artist not only visualizes the scale of this difficult problem and the endless streams of people that it involves, but also the tragedies of individual refugees.

This screening was made possible with the support of the UNHCR Malta.
