‘Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case,’ a vivid study of persecution, power and triumphant resistance, Friday, Oct. 2 on POV

On Friday, Oct. 2 at 10 p.m. (check local listings), POV presents the national broadcast premiere of Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case. Ai Weiwei has a serious problem with authority: The Chinese government not only kidnapped and imprisoned the world-renowned artist in a secret location for protesting its repressive policies, but after his release it conducted a show trial on baseless charges of tax evasion and pornography. Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case, a stunning and stirring documentary by Andreas Johnsen, dissects the persecution and shows how the government’s attempts to silence Ai Weiwei have turned him into China’s most powerful artist and an irrepressible voice for free speech and human rights around the globe. Official Selection of the 2013 International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. Read more.

Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case is the third in a trio of POV special presentations that explore how art shapes identity including Cutie and the Boxer, which aired on Sept. 18, about the unconventional 40-year marriage between painters Ushio and Noriko Shinohara, and Art and Craft, which aired Sept. 25, about master art forger Mark Landis.
