Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case
Documentary / Documentary / English, Mandarin
Making art is a dangerous business.
Following his 2011 arrest by Chinese authorities, artist Ai Weiwei spent 81 days in solitary confinement. He was then released but put under house arrest and banned from exhibiting his work in China. But art prevailed: Ai's own new sculptural series portraying his imprisonment and this compelling documentary from Danish director Andreas Johnsen, who spent a year with Ai and shared not only the stress and anguish he went through but also the moments of joy and solidarity.
