Ai Weiwei has been called the most influential, contemporary artist in the world. Parallel to his career as an artist he has directed and produced over 20 critical documentaries about modern life in China. We have invited Ai Weiwei to curate a film programme under this year's theme, 'Everything is Under Control'. A programme which reflects upon the role and responsibility of artists, the nature of power, and the possibilities for resistance – the trick is to see the films with Ai Weiwei's own work and life situation as a prism.
