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 Weiwei: 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. Klayman’s detailed portrait provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.

This film is presented in partnership by the Art Gallery of Alberta and Metro Cinema Society
