Ai Weiwei: Never Story

Ai Weiwei Never Story.  Photo

 

One of the most famous successful artists in the world, Ai Weiwei has earned international acclaim as much for his provocative art work as for his political activism.  “Ai Weiwei: Never Story” is the first feature-length portrait of the Chinese artist, filmmaker and social media maven.  Director Alison Klayman is given unprecedented access to Ai from the close of 2008 Beijing Olympics (for which he helped design the acclaimed ‘Bird’s Nest’ stadium) to his arrest and 81-day detention in 2011.  Presenting a unique look inside modern China, “Ai Weiwei: Never Story” captures Ai’s artistic process in preparation for major museum shows, his intimate exchanges with family members, and his increasingly public confrontations with authorities.  It reveals his irreverence, his humor, and his deeply moral convictions. Art and activities, for Ai Weiwei, come from the same place.  A film by Alison Klayman
