"Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry" coming to LR: Correction

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2012 at 11:36 AM

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry OFFICIAL TRAILER from Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry on Vimeo.


Alison Klayman's documentary on Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei will show Aug. 24 Aug. 31 at Market Street Cinema. (Press release gave wrong date!)

Weiwei is an installation artist whose work with another artist commemorating the deaths of thousands of students in the massive Chinese earthquake of 2008 and other public protests against Chinese authoritarianism got him jailed and beaten; his studio was destroyed last year and China will not allow him to leave the country.

One of Weiwei's best known nonpolitical pieces is "Sunflower Seeds," an installation of 8 million sunflower seeds that was purchased by the Tate Gallery in London.

No showing time for the documentary has been announced yet.
