On Sunday 21 October 2012, at Filmhuis The Hague, starting at 14.00 hrs, the documentary Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry will be shown, followed by a debate.
A personal portrait of Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei, who gained international acclaim for his ambitious postmodern works of art and his political provocations. Never Sorry follows three tumultuous years of his life. The film highlights the unique mix of art and activism with which the artist continuously argues in favour of freedom of expression, independent media and more transparency, thereby putting his life in jeopardy.

After the film, we have organized a debate between the public and Petra Quaedvlieg, correspondent in Shanghai for De Pers, and Anne Sytske Keijser, who teaches Chinese literature, film and language at the University of Leiden.
