Two years ago, renowned Chinese artist and filmmaker Ai Weiwei premiered his feature documentary “Human Flow” at the Venice Film Festival.
The film was an unfaltering exploration of the global refugee crisis and was crafted from more than 900 hours of footage shot across 23 nations and 40 of the world’s largest refugee camps.
On Thursday, Weiwei is premiered his follow-up feature, “The Rest,” at Copenhagen’s CPH:DOX festival. The under-the-radar film is essentially a follow-up to “Human Flow,” again depicting the refugee crisis but this time in a more intimate manner.
On the eve of the screening, “Screen Daily” caught up with the Berlin-based director, who continues to resist censorship from his home country of China.
