Here is the synopsis for “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry”:

Named by ArtReview as the most powerful artist in the world, Ai Weiwei is China’s most celebrated contemporary artist and its most outspoken domestic critic.

In April 2011 when Ai disappeared into police custody for three months, he quickly became China’s most famous missing person. Ai first rose to international prominence in 2008 after helping design Beijing’s iconic Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium. He then publicly denounced the games as party propaganda.

Since then, Ai Weiwei’s critiques of China’s repressive regime have ranged from playful photographs of his raised middle finger in front of Tiananmen Square to searing memorials to the more than 5,000 schoolchildren who died in shoddy government construction in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake.

Against a backdrop of strict censorship, Ai has become a kind of Internet champion. He has used his blog and frequently witty use of Twitter to organize, inform and inspire his followers. Ai has become an underground hero to millions of Chinese citizens.

First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to the charismatic artist as well as his family and others close to him while working as a journalist in Beijing. In the years she filmed, government authorities shut down Ai’s blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio and held him in secret detention.

All the while, Time magazine named him a runner-up for 2011’s Person of the Year. This compelling documentary is the inside story of a passionate dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics.
