Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

21st September - 7th October 2012

From 21st September to 7th October 2012 the exhibition rooms of MAMbo Permanent Collection hosted the screening of the docufilm Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry realised by the American journalist and director Alison Klayman (USA, 2012, 91').

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is the first full-length movie dedicated to Ai Weiwei (Beijing, 1957), versatile world-wide known artist who has been fighting for years to defend the values of freedom of expression. Shot between 2008 and 2011, the documentary gives an overview of the different moments and aspects of the artist's life: the conceptual processes underlying his work, the relationships in his familiar environment but also the events characterizing his most recent activities.

The movie, realized also thanks to original shooting and video materials recorded by Ai Weiwei himself, shows closely the everyday life of an artist engaged on different fronts: art, architecture, literature, documentaries and even social media actions and public protests. His works combines Chinese tradition to the ability to project himself in the modern society, blurring the boundaries between art and politics.

The screening was realized in collaboration with Biografilm Festival.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry was displayed in English with Italian subtitles.
