Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case
Friday, June 6, 2014 - 7:00p.m.
Directed by Andreas Johnsen. This new film picks up the story of China’s foremost dissident artist after the events chronicled in the 2012 documentary Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry. Released after 80 days in solitary confinement but still under house arrest and constant surveillance, Ai is seen with his partner and young son at home, working on projects and fighting a trumped-up charge of tax evasion. “Not just an update, but an even more galvanizing call for reform.” –Variety. Cleveland premiere.
