CAAM Membership Manager Miel Alegre interviewed Director Alison Klayman at this year’s San Francisco International Film Festival (4/19 – 5/3):

“A crackling documentary. Persuasively shows how inseparable Ai’s activism and art are”
– Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle

“Other films have been made about Ai Weiwei, but the difference is that Alison was on the ground living here and made a commitment to follow him at the sidewalk level.”
NY Times

“Ai is a man of courage, no less than Nelson Mandela or Mahatma Gandhi. No one, not even Ai, knows what will happen next; but because of people like Alison Klayman, the world is watching.”
