been extended in SF – we’re playing at Roxie Theatre from today until

Named Best Documentary of 2014 by the Danish Film Critics’ Association

After 81 days of solitary detention world famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei 
is put under house arrest. He suffers from sleeping disorder and memory 
loss, 18 cameras are monitoring his studio and home, police agents follow 
his every move, and heavy restrictions from the Kafkaesque Chinese 
authorities weigh him down.   Picking up where Alison Klayman’s Ai Weiwei: 
Never Sorry left off, AI WEIWEI THE FAKE CASE is more explicitly political, 
reflecting Ai’s battle against the gigantic lawsuit thrust upon him by the 
Chinese government in an effort to silence him.  Ai Weiwei is shaken, but 
during his year on probation he steadily finds new ways to provoke and 
challenge the mighty powers of the Chinese authorities in his fight for 
human rights and free expression.  The film also features the creation of 
S.A.C.R.E.D., a new work depicting Ai’s time in prison, which premiered 
during the Venice Biennale and is now on view at the Brooklyn Museum.

Thank you so much & have a great weekend!
