Ai Weiwei on Documentary

The BFI Doc Society publishes a very good newsletter. In the one I received yesterday, there was a text about the presence of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, whose last film ”The Rest” was screened at the Sheffield Documentary Festival. He was interviewed by Jess Search, here is a bit of what he said about documentary:

"Documentary is always a challenge. it's very close range. If it's fighting, it's like boxing. You have to take all those punches and you have to feel the pain… and about the medium… “You cannot hide, you expose yourself and also you have no excuse about any mistakes. So I love it because it's so truthful and clear and direct. It's a very honest form, as honest as it can get. So that's why it attracts me so much. Because it requires observation, understanding and passion, it requires a lot of passion."

His previous documentary, edited by Danish Niels Pagh Andersen, « Human Flow », was praised on this site:
