3. Ai Weiwei is a social media genius
With the Chinese government restricting Ai Weiwei's use of social media these days, the best way to follow breaking news about the artist's latest provocations is to follow the upcoming documentary feature Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry on Twitter and Facebook. Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is the first feature-length documentary to go inside his world and tell the story of how China's preeminent contemporary artist became its most outspoken domestic critic. Directed by Alison Klayman (one of Filmmaker Magazine's '25 New Faces of Independent Film), the documentary is currently in post-production and slated for a 2012 release.
