Film Review: Ai Weiwei: the Fake Case


In our modern world it was throughly appropriate that Ai Weiwei wrote an article for Newsday condemning China for forgetting about the massacre in Tiananmen Square twenty-five years ago. Ai Weiwei has become China's most famous artist, the artistic consultant behind the Beijing National Stadium, the "Bird's Nest" of the 2008 Olympics. As China has tried to silence him, he's growing more critical of the government and better known worldwide. He's a canary in toxic mineshaft. His art focuses on mocking China's ruling Communist Party.
