A LIFE LIVED IN SILENCE IS NOT A LIFE.
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!
