Dinner and a Movie series: Al Weiwei: The Fake Case

When: Thu., May 29, 7 p.m. 2014

After 81 days of solitary detention world famous Chinese artist Al Weiwei is put under house arrest. He suffers from sleeping disorder and memory loss, 18 cameras are monitoring his studio and home, police agents follow his every move, and heavy restrictions from the Chinese authorities weigh him down. Picking up where Alison Klayman's Al Weiwei: Never Sorry left off, AI Weiwei: The Fake Case is more explicitly political, reflecting Al's battle against the gigantic lawsuit thrust upon him by the Chinese government in an effort to silence him. He is shaken, but during his year on probation he steadily finds new ways to provoke and challenge the mighty powers of the Chinese authorities.
