Join us as we extend the AGH Film Series from our screens to yours! From July 10 to 17, stream Ai Weiwei: Yours Truly, the award-winning documentary detailing the human rights concerns at the heart of prolific artist Ai Weiwei’s practice.
Human rights become profoundly personal when Ai Weiwei, China’s most famous artist, transforms Alcatraz Island prison into an astonishing expression of socially-engaged art focused on the plight of the unjustly incarcerated. At the core of the installation, called @Large, were portraits of prisoners of conscience coupled with the opportunity to write letters of solidarity to the imprisoned.
In her impassioned and powerful film, director Cheryl Haines captures this monumental exhibition from conception to fruition, and as well visits current and former prisoners, including American whistleblower Chelsea Manning, to learn how these letters were vital to their survival.
