A touching documentary about artist and activist Ai Weiwei. Weiwei is an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist who has spoken out against the practices of the Chinese government for many years, he expresses himself through his art and social media. The Chinese authorities have attempted to silence him on many occasions, most notably in April 2011 when he was arrested and missing for around three months.

NW

I just started reading Zadie Smith's new book: NW. It  paints beautiful and rich portrait of North-West London, its a must-read for anyone who lives in the area. The pages are artfully laid out, Poetic but readable.

 





Bread and Puppet.
