Join us for a Fort Bragg exclusive screening of the upcoming POV Special Broadcast of ‘Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case’, October 2, 2015@ 5 pm @ Fort Bragg Branch Library.

From PBS.com

ai weiweiAi 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.
