Congratulations to filmmaker Alison Klayman, whose full-length film on China’s most famous artist and provocateur, Ai Weiwei Never Sorry, will premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Utah this January. The film is one of 16 in the festival’s U.S. documentary competition.
Klayman spent two years filming Ai and produced the FRONTLINE story Who’s Afraid of Ai Weiwei?, which aired in March shortly before he was detained by the Chinese authorities for three months. You can watch the full segment below.
Shortly after Ai’s release, I spoke with Klayman about her upcoming film:
