Winner of the Special Jury Prize for Spirit fo Defiance at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival (where it world premiered), Alison Klayman’s acclaimed documentary “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” profiles Ai Weiwei, China’s most famous international artist and outspoken domestic critic. Sundance Selects, who acquired the film following its run at Berlinale, released the official trailer for the film today, ahead of its July 27 theatrical release.
“The Ai Weiwei that shines through in ‘Never Sorry’ is a creative and principled artist, willing to make calculated risks to spread his message,” Klayman shared with Indiewire. “He is an artist pushing his society to grapple with its shortcomings, but at the same time, he is an international art star, holding a Chinese passport and speaking his mind online and on his home soil. He is a charismatic figure that in many ways embodies the multitude of experiences and realities in China, how China has changed and how it has more room to grow.”
