The Wadsworth Atheneum is showing Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case several times; I chose the Wednesday screening because it includes a Skype discussion with filmmaker Andreas Johnsen at 7 pm, followed by the film screening.
Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case picks up where Never Sorry left off: world-renowned artist Ai Weiwei is under house arrest and restricted by Chinese authorities in everything he does. But he does it anyway.
2013. Denmark. 89 min. Not Rated. English and Mandarin with subtitles. Directed by Andreas Johnsen. The Fake Case was recently awarded the 2014 Bodil Award for Best Documentary. Denmark’s highest film honors, the Bodil Awards are given annually by the Danish Critics’ Association.
Admission: $9 Adult; $8 Seniors(62+) & Students; $7 Members; Free for Insider Access & above.
If you cannot join us on Wednesday and want to see the film, ADDITIONAL SCREENINGS of the film only are:
Thursday, May 22 at 7 pm
