About the film: Ai Weiwei is China’s most internationally acclaimed artist and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship, Ai expresses himself and organises 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. First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai Weiwei 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.
