Co-presented by O Cinema and Oolite Arts,
Art Films presents a FREE virtual live screening of AI WEIWEI: YOURS TRULY on Wednesday, September 23rd @ 7:00pm, followed by a post-film discussion with director Cheryl Haines & Oolite Arts Vice President Esther Park.

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.

POST-FILM Q&A:

“One of the great films of the year! A near-perfect look at Weiwei’s art installation that took place on Alcatraz Island. Truly magical…a must-see!”
– UNSEEN FILMS

“Powerful! A moving cinematic experience and so wide-ranging a project that it is likely to appeal even to those who might not think they are interested in the famed artist.“
