Ai Weiwei is not only one of the most famous Chinese artists but also one of the most controversial. His commitment to art and politics is encapsulated in this imaginative and powerful documentary, which focuses on a project he started while still under house arrest: the transformation of Alcatraz into a socially engaging work of art. Together with curator/director Cheryl Haines, he incorporates his personal experiences with political imprisonment into the creation of a testament to the theme of freedom in an unjust world, and the ability to find profound human connections in unlikely places.

Followed by a FilmBath interview with director Cheryl Haines
