The film examines this complex intersection of artistic practice and social activism as seen through the life and art of Chinas preeminent contemporary artist. From 2008 to 2010, Beijing-based journalist and filmmaker Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai Weiwei. Klayman documented Ais artistic process in preparation for major museum exhibitions, his intimate exchanges with family members and his increasingly public clashes with the Chinese government. Klaymans detailed portrait of the artist provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.
