Synopsis

Art and politics collide in this eye-opening portrait of outspoken Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei. A charismatic and infectiously energetic character, he achieved worldwide fame in 2008 after co-designing his country’s iconic 'Bird’s Nest' Olympic Stadium - and then publicly denouncing the Games as government propaganda. Since then he's continued to use his multi-media work to criticise China’s repressive regime, becoming an underground hero to millions thanks also to his witty internet blogging and Twitter commentary, despite strict censorship laws. But as this thought-provoking documentary reveals, he's paid a disturbingly high price for his persistent dissent: getting beaten by police, having his studio bulldozed, and even being secretly imprisoned.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
