Klayman did an extraordinary job of tracking how Ai Weiwei has brilliantly fused his work as an artist and advocate for individual rights and government accountability in China.
This is what others have had to say about the film:
“A galvanizing documentary; An intimate portrait of the artist.”
“Alison Klayman’s documentary is one of the most engagingly powerful movies of the year.”
“Watching”Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” is like experiencing a thrilling unfinished symphony: The story is enthralling, but it’s not over, and there’s no telling where it’s going. Which makes what we see on screen all the more involving.”
– Kenneth Turan
“Documentarian Alison Klayman’s prismatic portrait of the artist, ‘Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry,’ is a useful primer, though it also focuses a bit more on the activism than on the art. That’s probably because, for its subject, the line between the two is so indistinct.”
