Disturbing the Peace
Ai Weiwei
2009, 79 minutes
Chinese with English subtitles

Following the Sichuan earthquake of 2008, environmentalist and journalist Tan Zuoren asked families to help create a database of lost and injured children: the “5.12 Student Archive.” As a result of this project and his criticism of the poor building construction of Sichuan’s schools, Zuoren was charged with “inciting subversion of state power.” Disturbing the Peace follows an incident during Zuoren’s trial on August 12, 2009.

So Sorry
Ai Weiwei
2011, 55 minutes
Chinese and English with English subtitles

Produced as a sequel to Disturbing the Peace, the film So Sorry shows the investigation led by Ai Weiwei Studio to identify the students who died during the Sichuan earthquake of 2008. During his research Ai was confronted and beaten by the Chengdu police, later suffering a brain hemorrhage that required emergency surgery. These events mark the beginning of Ai’s struggle with the Chinese Government and his ongoing surveillance at the hands of the state police.
