Tuesday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m.

This screening is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by CU-Boulder’s International Film Series.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry follows the internationally renowned Chinese artist as he garners international attention for his artwork, as well as his political provocations of the Chinese government. Klayman followed Weiwei over a three year period, during which time the activist artist was detained by authorities and an international call for his release was made.

Klayman was recently named one of the 20 directors to watch by The New York Times. Her debut documentary Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry was shortlisted for an Academy Award and won a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

The CWA Athenaeum Series is a student-run offshoot of the Conference on World Affairs. The program brings acclaimed presenters to campus to interact with CU students in classes throughout the academic year. Each Athenaeum program also includes a public event, which is always free and open to all.
