Artist and filmmaker Ai Weiwei tracks and examines the staggering scale of the migrant crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. An ambitious, deeply humane and visually striking work that contemplates the pressing subject of human migration.
A film and talk by Mark McGann
The story of a man who battles for mental stability in a terrifying new world. Written and directed by Mark McGann and starring his brother Paul McGann, Perplexed Music is inspired by Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Petrarchan sonnet of the same name.
The affluent Laurent family live in an haute-bourgeois bubble in Calais, all under the same (albeit palatial) roof,
oblivious to the nearby migrant crisis. A black comedy portrait of family dysfunction and an unforgiving and gripping satire on the moral failings of polite society.
