M A X D U N C A N | Ai WeiWei On Beijing – From the Guardian Cities/Tate Series ‘The Artist and Their City’

I love simple little docs like this. Shooter Max Duncan, based in Beijing, has produced this honest portrait of artist Ai WeiWei introducing us to his city Beijing, and neighbourhood Caochangdi. An interview with the artist provides voice over which narrates us through the film, as we see the places and influences he speaks of. Check out his huge upcoming retrospective in the RA in London if you have time, too.
