Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012)

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (in Chinese 艾未未:道歉你妹; official title in Taiwan 艾未未:草泥馬) is a 2012 documentary film about Chinese artist and civil and political rights activist Ai Weiwei, directed by American filmmaker Alison Klayman.

Director Alison Klayman received a special jury prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival for the film, which also opened the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto on 26 April 2012.

Ai Weiwei is not only a famous artist, but also a civil and political rights activist living and working in the communist People’s Republic of China.

Ai Weiwei´s life was not always easy since he started with his work as a civil and political rights activist and he already had a lot of troubles and confrontations with the Chinese authorities.

I watched that movie some days ago and I can really recommend it. The movie is well done and gives a good inside into Ai Weiwei´s personal life, artistic work and his work as a civil and political rights activist.

Ai Weiwei is a funny and clever guy and usually manages to present his political message with humour and irony.

See as an example for this Ai Weiwei´s version of the South Korean world wide hit song of 2012 “Gangnam Style“.
