This Is Not a Film

Under house arrest in Tehran, Iranian auteur Jafar Panahi managed to smuggle his film This Is Not a Film (2012; 7:30 pm ) out of the country by putting it on a flashdrive and sticking it in a cake. Under house arrest in China, world-renowned artist Ai Weiwei gets his message out via Twitter and other ironic acts of subversion, as seen in Alison Klayman's Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012; 5:30 + 9:15). Phoenix critic Monica Castillo provides the intros in this installment of the Brattle's "Best of 2012" series.
