F**k You, Motherland

Ai Weiwei is China's most famous artist, as well as its most outspoken domestic critic. In a country full 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 website, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention for months.

Ai WeiWei's work is highly controversial. Because of China's censorship everytime Ai produces a new piece of work he faces the risk of imprisonment or worse. The new film Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry captures Ai's on-going battle with the Chinese government and the controversy surrounding himself and his work. Check out the trailer below.
