Film Website



DOCUMENTARY For the last two years, Ai Wei Wei has lived outside China as an involuntary emigré. The people that he met on a year-long journey through 23 countries aren’t prominent dissidents or artists. They have fled war and misery, through jungle, over mountains and across seas. Ai Weiwei has been to Kenya and Iraq, Gaza and Italy, to refugee centres in Berlin and Greek beaches and talked to people who left everything behind. In haunting pictures, he gives space to the hopes, privations and fears of his protagonists, who represent the 65 million displaced people in the world today.


Born in 1957 in Peking, AI WEIWEI (*1957) is one of the best-known artists in the world. Imprisoned for a few months in 2011 for criticising the government, he was then forbidden from travelling abroad. In 2015, he left China and today amongst other things teaches at the University of Arts in Berlin.
