    Lots of stuff here...

    First, there's are broadcast news reports concerning Chinese citizens growing support for Ai Weiwei after his release from prison. The news reports how Ai Weiwei was given a huge tax bill from the Chinese government (presumably as punishment for his political activism). Then it reports how the Chinese people are sending money to Weiwei as a sign of their support. Then it shows a self-shot video of Weiwei singing and dancing to an amusing Chinese song as a way of thanking all of his supporters.

    The film is dedicated to Ai Wenwen, Liu Xiaobo, and one other (couldn't write it down fast enough; they're the three dissidents talked about in the movie).

    The film ends with the slogan "Don't retreat, retweet." Ai Weiwei uses Twitter to spread his political messages.

    Typo in the previous msg: the name is Weiwei, not Wenwen.

  • Wow, that is a lot! Thanks a bunch as always!
