Cinema for Peace Talks

As a part of informal Cinema for Peace Talks, Ai Weiwei hosted Oscar-Winning actress and activist Susan Sarandon in his workshop to discuss films, arts, refugees and the G20 summit.

 

As a part of informal Cinema for Peace Talks, Ai Weiwei hosted Oscar-Winning actress and activist Susan Sarandon in his workshop to discuss films, arts, refugees and the G20 summit.
Ai Weiwei had created a refugee life-vest installation with Cinema for Peace in 2016 and directed this year a film about refugees "The Human Flow".
Susan Sarandon had spent Christmas with refugees and helped on Lesbos. It was the first time the two artists met and shared their ideas. Cinema for Peace had taken action among many others to free Ai Weiwei from prison and house arrest, who specifically fell in dishonor as a filmmaker in China, where he disclosed the corruption case regarding the earthquake in Szechuan and the consequent suffering of the children. Cinema for Peace presented Ai Weiwei as a filmmaker and showed some of his movies at the Martin-Gropius-Bau. The artist also served as a president of the Cinema for Peace Jury in 2016.
Susan Sarandon had been advocating for Ai Weiwei at the Cinema of Peace event during Art Basel at the Foundation Beyeler for his release and was the chairperson of the Cinema for Peace Gala in Berlin with Tim Robbins in 2005.
Commenting on the current year’s G20 summit, the artist said that the G20 did not do enough to address the plight of refugees and to stop wars. Susan Sarandon said that she doesn’t believe that either G20 or Donald Trump will solve problems facing the world and that Twitter is probably the only and limited format to reach the U.S. Presidents attention.
