Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

/ /
Oy vey? No way! Ai Weiwei!

The documentary AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY is a fascinating portrait of the eponymous Chinese artist, who became famous far beyond the art world when he was detained by Chinese autorities for ”incomplete departure procedures”. Having become an annoying thorn in the side of the all-powerful Communist Party, Ai uses his newfound celebrity status to spotlight the authorities’ blatant disregard for human rights through a series of politicized art projects.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is ALISON KLAYMAN's debut feature documentary, which she directed, produced, filmed and co-edited. She is a 2011 Sundance Documentary Fellow and one of Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film". Klayman lived in China from 2006 to 2010, working as a freelance journalist. She speaks Mandarin and Hebrew, and graduated from Brown University in 2006.
