Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry
September 7, 2016 @ 6:00 pm UTC+10
Join Amnesty International Charters Towers for a screening of the award winning documentary AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY at Charters Towers Tors Drive-In on Wednesday the 7th of September.
Ai Weiwei is China’s most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organizes people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention.
AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY is the inside story of a dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics. First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai while working as a journalist in China. Her detailed portrait provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.
Tickets are only $10 for adults and $5 for students, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets.
