Fulbright TA Dennis Wegner Discusses Movie on Refugees

"When Dennis Wegner, advisor for the Max Kade Living Learning Community, located in the Max Kade German Center, heard that “Human Flow” was coming to the Hop, he knew that residents would be interested in the film because the migrant issue is such a hot topic in Germany. Indeed, Germany is one of the countries highlighted in Weiwei’s film; Weiwei captures crowds of migrants attempting to cross into Hungary to reach Germany.

Wegner said that he invited the other Living Learning Communities to participate due to the global pattern of migration.

[...]

Wegner held a discussion on the refugee crisis to provide interested students with deeper context prior to the film screening. He invited Haley Johnston, a graduate student in the Master of Liberal Arts program in the globalization studies track, to be the guest speaker. Johnston wrote her undergraduate thesis on the migrant crisis in Europe and worked at a refugee center in Canada for two summers, during which she met refugees from over 30 different countries."
