Description


Over 65 million people around the world have recently 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 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.

Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future.

Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?

LIVE MUSIC - with Kym Staton


Kym Staton has been serenading audiences in cafes, bars, pubs and other small venues as a singer/songwriter since 2012 and has performed more than three-hundred gigs at intimate venues around Sydney and Melbourne - including Bar 303, The Factory Theatre, The Newsagency, Newtown Social Club, Dome Bar, The White Horse, Broadway Lounge, Govindas Movie Room, Loop Project Space and countless other intimate venues, honing his skills and stagecraft.

He has a unique sound both exotic and earthy, and a wide and eclectic repertoire of blues, jazz and folk covers, weird old songs and unusual originals. His rare rock tenor voice goes from subtle to soaring in a heartbeat, and the exquisite interplay of his captivating vocals and a deft touch on his telecaster and acoustic guitar must to be heard to be believed.

Check out some of Kym's music on his youtube channel:

Kym Staton is currently recording a live cafe album over a series of nights at Orwells Cafe, Potts Point (Sydney) - which will document his past five years of intimate live performances and expansive repertoire. Keep an eye out on our newsletter for dates and cd release.
