Power of Protest Film Series: Ai WeiWei's Never Sorry
September 16, 2019 –
Screening Ai WeiWei's Never Sorry (2012) (Directed by Alison Klayman)
Description: "Ai Weiwei is China's most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organizes people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention." Dr. Phillip Guingona, Assistant Professor of History at Wells College, will moderate: inviting audiences to consider the context of the film in reference to other prominent public protests in China, including the recent movement in Hong Kong.
