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

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
