More about this event:
The Hammer presents three days of documentaries about and by China’s most famous international artist and its most outspoken domestic critic—Ai Weiwei.

Ai Wei Wei: Never Sorry is the inside story of a dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics. First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai while working as a journalist in China. Her detailed portrait provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.
