Ai Weiwei is China’s most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organizes people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly-built studio and held him in secret detention. This riveting documentary is the inside story of a dissident in the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art, human rights and politics.

Winner of a Special Jury Prize at Sundance, and the opening night film of the 2012 Hot Docs Festival.
