NWFC – Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case

July 19, 2015 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Whitsell Auditorium, inside the Portland Art Museum

Presented by
Northwest Film Center

Andreas Johnsen’s 2013 documentary Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case reveals the artist after his parole and battle with a thwarting suit for tax evasion: a lawsuit that he dubs “the Fake Case.” But the troubles with his enemies only continue to provide inspiration for making new art, the only outlet to vent his frustration.

“The film picks up where Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry left off, serving as not just an update but an even more galvanizing call for reform. Ai’s voice carries louder than ever before.”—Variety.
