Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012)

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012)
Directed by: Alison Klayman
Country: USA

Review: This is a powerful and thorough documentary about the Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei, famous not only for his art but also for his clash with the Chinese Government. The movie covers a long period in Ai Weiwei's life, giving a perspective of the events that led him to a brain surgery and posterior domiciliary imprisonment. This will be another slap in the face of China’s Government, since we witness the inexistence of human rights, corruption and a shadowy democracy. Several people contributed with their words to tell the world how Weiwei is so important in this never-ending struggle. His personal life was also documented, although in a very discrete way. “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” denounces a persisting problem and shows how much fearless people are needed to make pacific changes.
