Ai Wei Wei: Never Sorry (2012)

         AC Films executive producer

          Directed by Alison Klayman

A galvanizing documentary; An intimate portrait of the artist.

THE NEW YORK Times

 

Alison Klayman's documentary is one of the most engagingly powerful movies of the year.

THE BOSTON GLOBE

 

Like experiencing a thrilling unfinished symphony: the story is enthralling, but it's not over, and there's no telling where it's going. Which makes what we see on screen all the more involving.
LOS ANGELES Times

 

The coolest art world doc since Exit Through the Gift Shop, but it's so much more necessary than that.

Ai Weiwei is China's most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organizes people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention.

Ai Wei Wei: Never Sorry is the inside story of a dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics.

 

First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai while working as a journalist in China. Her detailed portrait provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.
