I'm late to this one, as the film actually screened at the Sydney Film Festival a couple of weeks ago.

But if the trailer attracts you to this documentary about dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei ('I don't think I am a dissident artist; I see them as a dissident government.'), then keep an eye on the official website, which will no doubt have news of a DVD release soon. Meanwhile, here's an interview with director Alison Klayman.

A note on the 'Australia in the Asian Century' banner used for this post: for a refresher on what this special feature is all about, see Michael Wesley's introductory post, which notes that one of the tasks of the Australia in the Asian Century White Paper team is to understand what is actually happening in Asia. In regard to China, at least, Ai Weiwei and the social forces he represents are a big piece of that story.
