Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry Trailer (2012)

China’s most famous international artist, Ai WeiWei, is shown with unprecedented access in this Sundance special jury prize-winning portrait. Artistic consultant for the Beijing National Stadium for the 2008 Olympics and named the most powerful contemporary artist by ArtReview magazine, Ai gained worldwide attention after his arrest and two-month detention by Chinese authorities last year. Amid growing concerns for his safety and facing a constant battle with the government, including the bulldozing of his studio, physical attack and his blog being taken offline, he continues to express his feelings towards strict Chinese censorship through his art and social media. Blurring the boundaries between activism and art, Ai has gained international acclaim and a devout following. Through art, politics and humour, Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry takes us into the artist’s world to reveal a man of unrelenting spirit and defiance who inspires millions across the globe.
