(2007, dir. Ai Weiwei, 152 mins., NR)

This film documents a project produced for the European art event, Documenta 12, in which Ai invited 1,001 Chinese citizens of various ages and backgrounds to come to Kassel, Germany. They were asked to examine their dreams for the future, as well as the artist's own. Subtitled in English, the film examines the process beginning with the preparations for the project, through the challenges that the participants faced, as well as the artist's ideas behind the work.
