Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry tells the story of the irascible, rabble rousing artist (his giant bronze Zodiac sculptures are currently on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art, click here for more information), and his constant clashes with the Chinese government (one of which resulted in a lengthy detainment, another a severe beating) as he partakes in his many endeavors, which include his Earthquake Names Project which sought to name all the casualties in the 2009 Sichuan catastrophe. Ai Weiwei proves an engaging subject, often coming off as a deliberate instigator, but still engaging nonetheless.
