Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry at The Warhol, June 3 through August 28.

The 2012 documentary Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry will play at The Warhol Museum daily from June 3 through August 3. The movie's official site summarizes:
Ai Weiwei is China's most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organizes people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention.

AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY is the inside story of a dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics. First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai while working as a journalist in China. Her detailed portrait provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.
The movie will play at 2:00 pm each day of the Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei exhibition through August 28. The Warhol is located at 117 Sandusky St. on the Northside (map). It's open every day but Monday, and adult admission is $20.
