Indie film tells the story of Chinese artist

Ai Weiwei is the Chinese artist who was the artistic design consultant for the Bird’s Nest Stadium at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry will play at the Vogue Theatre on Monday night.

The latest indie flick to play in Fernie showcases Ai Weiwei, the Chinese artist and activist who was the artistic design consultant for the Bird’s Nest Stadium at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry tells the story of the artist as a key contemporary figure and how he became the runner-up for TIME Magazine’s 2011 Person of the Year. Beijing-based journalist and filmmaker, Alison Klayman, spent two years with unprecedented access to Ai Weiwei. The film also looks into China’s internal politics following the country’s display of promise and growth at the 2008 Olympics.

Opening the 2012 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival to great critical acclaim, Fernie audiences will have the chance to see what Ai Weiwei is all about this Monday night. Playing at the Vogue Theatre at 7 p.m., tickets are available at the door and online.

Arts Station Members: Adult, $9 and Youth, $8. 
Non-Members: Adult, $10 and Youth, $9.
