Tune in & drop in this Friday at 7pm
You ought to be in pictures, BR! Culture Candy is launching its eagerly anticipated local arts film site CCTV this week, and what better way to showcase it then to partner with the stellar indie arts film programming happening at the Manchip Theatre!
Come out to the Manship, grab a glass, and get comfy--we'll introduce you to CCTV, and then we'll all watch Ai Weiwei, the award winning arts doc (see below) that's burning up indie screens--what a perfect night!
Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (Klayman, 2012)
Award-winning artist documentary
The CCTV launch this Friday will unabashedly ride the coattails of this hot art doc! Come for the local arts initiative, but stay for the exceptional film! (An astounding 97% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes)
Ai Weiwei is China's most celebrated contemporary artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. In April 2011, when Ai disappeared into police custody for three months, he quickly became China’s most famous missing person, having first risen to international prominence in 2008 after helping design Beijing’s iconic Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium and then publicly denouncing the Games as party propaganda.
Contemporary art thriller with political intrigue, a missing person mystery, and James Bond technology (OK, maybe it's just social media, but what a film for Friday date night!)
