Ai Weiwei The Fake Case

by Andreas Johnsen Border Lines

Artist Ai Weiwei spent 81 days behind bars. The charismatic jack-of-all-trades is still a thorn in the Chinese government’s eye and since his release has lived under house arrest and constant police observation. Danish filmmaker Andreas Johnsen accompanies Ai Weiwei on his difficult journey back to ‘normality’, and demonstrates how he uses both the backing of the public and the international media as a protective shield. In defiance of this constant harassment, Ai Weiwei has resolved to remain true to himself as a critical artist. Two years after AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY, this film gives us the close-up opportunity to catch up on Ai Weiwei’s struggle for freedom of expression and human rights in China.
