PR Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry on Blu-ray & DVD Dec 4

IFC Entertainment



Journalist and filmmaker Alison Klayman was granted unprecedented access to Ai Weiwei to present this first feature-length portrait of the sculptor, photographer, filmmaker and installation artist. Presenting a rare look inside modern China while documenting Ai's courageous artistic process in preparation for major museum exhibitions, his intimate exchanges with family members, and his increasingly public clashes with the police and the government.

A RARE AND PRIVILEGED LOOK AT THE HEROIC LIFE OF ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST ACCLAIMED - AND PERSECUTED - ARTISTS

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

The Inside Story of One of China's Most Compelling Figures as He Prepares Exhibits While Clashing With the Government Comes to Blu-ray and DVD on DVD on December 4, 2012

"One of the most engagingly powerful movies of the year" - Ty Burr, Boston Globe "a valuable introduction to a man everyone should know." - Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

He is China's most globally renowned artist and a leading activist in the fight against oppression. And now, in Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, we meet the man behind the headlines. This revealing look at the artist comes to high-definition Blu-ray and DVD from IFC Films on December 4, 2012, with SRPs, respectively, of $29.98 and $24.98.

Journalist and filmmaker Alison Klayman was granted unprecedented access to Ai Weiwei to present this first feature-length portrait of the sculptor, photographer, filmmaker and installation artist. Ai was widely praised for his work on the "Bird's Nest" stadium for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, but that same year his criticism of the Chinese government following the Sichuan earthquake that claimed thousands of schoolchildren made him a target of the powers that be.

Presenting a rare look inside modern China while documenting Ai's courageous artistic process in preparation for major museum exhibitions, his intimate exchanges with family members, and his increasingly public clashes with the police and the government, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is a unique portrait of the man behind the headlines.

Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleiberman gave the movie a grade of A and said Ai "radiates a mischievous sense of the absurdity - and necessity - of one man tossing stones at a regime this gigantic." "The story is enthralling, but it's not over, and there's no telling where it's going. Which makes what we see on screen all the more involving," said Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times. "Ai Weiwei is a crucial figure of East-West cultural communication and contemporary history, whose middle finger extended at the centers of power stands for a rising tide of global discontent," said Andrew O'Hehir of Salon.

The movie "is likely to change the way you think about art and politics and the state of China today," said Tirdad Derakhshani of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Peter Rainer of the Christian Science Monitor called it "a new-style profile in 21st-century courage." "This riveting documentary deserves consideration for year-end awards," said Keith Cohen of Entertainment Spectrum. Phillip French of the U.K.'s Observer called it "a lively, informative, funny and inspirational portrait of a courageous, charismatic, highly original man," while Robbie Collin of the Daily Telegraph called in "stirring."
