Discover the man behind the artist and activist in the feature-length film, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry as it hits the Historic Theater this Tuesday, October 16, 2012.
The film is created by Beijing-based journalist and filmmaker Alison Klayman and gives the audience a glimpse of Ai’s artistic process as he prepares for major museum exhibits, his moments with his loved ones as a family man, and his clashes with the Chinese government as a political activist.
Ai is active in sculpture, installation, architecture, curating, photography, film, and social, political and cultural criticism. Ai collaborated with Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron as the artistic consultant on the Beijing National Stadium for the 2008 Olympics.
As a political activist, he has been highly and openly critical of the Chinese Government’s stance on democracy and human rights. He has investigated government corruption and cover-ups, in particular the Sichuan schools corruption scandal following the collapse of so-called “tofu-skin schools” in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake
