Chinese artist and architect Ai Weiwei is famous for his design of Beijing's Bird's Nest Stadium, his 100 million ceramic sunflower seeds, his memorial to the children killed in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, and his provocative spirit - exemplified by his signature series of photos of a middle finger raised against iconic Chinese monuments. With extraordinary access over three years, director Alison Klayman recorded Ai's work processes and exhibitions, as well as his activism. She's there when he lodges his complaint against the police for demolishing his Shanghai studio, and at his bedside as he recovers from surgery following a violent police raid. Affable and media-savvy, Ai is a major embarrassment to the Chinese government, and was jailed for two months in 2011. Ai objects: "I don't think I am a dissident artist; I see them as a dissident government." (New Statesman)
