Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry
(2012, dir. Alison Klayman, 91 mins., R)
Between 2008 and 2011, director Alison Klayman was given unprecedented access to artist Ai Weiwei—beginning with his work on the “Bird’s Nest” Olympic stadium and continuing through the aftermath of his government detention. The resulting film is a touching, inspirational, and sometimes humorous portrait of a man whose roles as artist and activist cannot be separated. Presented by the IMA Contemporary Art Society.
