It puts a human face on the worldwide refugee crisis. The director Ai Weiwei takes us on a journey to various parts of the world (mainly Europe and the Middle East) where we get to hear the moving stories of the refugees themselves. A bit overlong at two hours and twenty minutes, the film is very compelling nonetheless. Expand

This movie is honest and depressing, but we have to face the truth. Every person should watch this movie because it shows the world we live in and what our actions today might bring for the future. Ai Weiwei does a great job with the flow ofThis movie is honest and depressing, but we have to face the truth. Every person should watch this movie because it shows the world we live in and what our actions today might bring for the future. Ai Weiwei does a great job with the flow of the movie and plays a lot with silence to give the viewer time to think during watching. Expand

The movie provides one half of relevant information on the subject.

The other half starts with famine and war being at all time lows in human history and displacement or migration or movement of peoples not only all time lows but the most natural part of human history of all. The movie says under 10% of people have been displaced. For 99% of human history humans were nomads. There were no nations states or cities. Humans thrived and became the dominant species on earth. Movement and migration is in our DNA.

Plague, famine and war were the biggest threats to life for millennia upon millennia. Not any more. Far more people die of obesity than famine. Cancer than war. Car accidents than plague. Keep your skeptical hat on when watching movies like this. They invariably provide only one side of an issue.
