Leaving home, empathy and compassion

Today I just wanted to share a film that I just rewatched, which came out in 2017, called Human flow, a humane and often shocking cine-essay on the subject of migrants.

Films like this one make me think about my place in the world. They help me reframe my take on being a bit off sometimes in a society that seems so different from what I am used to, so quiet and distant at times. I don´t live in my homeland, but despite being a Spanish in Denmark who has not yet learned the language, and who feels insecure and isolated at times, I must remind myself that I have won various lotteries in life. I don't need to flee; I am safe and loved.

I hope that you also find inspiration, compassion, and empathy in the film below. Human Flow is director and artist Ai Weiwei's detailed, ambitious, humane and often shocking exploration of the global refugee crisis.
