Andreas Johnsen's documentary Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case follows the persecuted Chinese artist after he is released from prison upon completing a three-month term imposed by the government, which finds his work objectionable. The filmmakers demonstrate how he must continue to fight legal accusations made by the establishment, how he draws strength from his many supporters around the world, and how all of this tumult is expressed in his work.
