Ai Weiwei: “Never Sorry”
Chinese dissident artist and political activist | January 20
We begin our Friday night ART Movie program with this award-winning 90-minute documentary. This is the inside story of China’s most famous dissident artist of the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics. 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.
