In recent years, Ai Weiwei has garnered international attention as much for his ambitious artwork as his political provocations. Never Sorry examines this complex intersection of artistic practice and social activism as seen through the life and art of China's preeminent contemporary artist. 

 "An inspiring and important documentary, Never Sorry provides a vivid primer on Mr. Ai's art and on his days as an art student and artist in New York. The film's greatest distinction is its intimacy, Ai's is a special kind of courage, and it impels him to act with special agility in a brave new world of his own making, where little tweets can challenge big lies and a blog post can echo like thunder." - Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal 

Special Jury Prize, Sundance Film Festival, 2012
