Remembrance CN 2010, R: Ai Weiwei, 221 Min, Non-narrative film
On May 12, 2008, an 8.0-magnitude earthquake struck Wenchuan, Sichuan province. Over 5,000 students in primary and secondary schools perished in the disaster. In the aftermath, Chinese authorities suppressed information regarding the number of student deaths. Ai Weiwei initiated a ‘Citizens' Investigation,’ uncovering the names of over 5,000 victims. In 2010, Ai Weiwei created Remembrance as a memorial to the students, with over 3,000 people online delivering voice recordings reciting the names of those that perished.
