Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry–Documentary about Chinese Dissident

Ai Weiwei is China’s most celebrated contemporary artist and its most outspoken domestic critic.

First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to the charismatic artist, as well as his family and others close to him, while working as a journalist in Beijing.

During the years she filmed her footage, government authorities shut down Ai’s blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him secret detention—all while Time magazine named him as runner-up for 2011’s Person of the Year.

This compelling documentary is the inside story of a passionate dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of arts and politics.
