Allegations of censorship at the Berlin Film Festival: Chinese director Zhang Yimou pulls his film, and in a DW exclusive interview, Ai Weiwei says his work was blocked from selection. Are they being targeted by Beijing's censors?
Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei believes that the withdrawal of Zhang Yimou's 'One Second' from the Berlin Film Festival is related to the cover up of misdeeds during the Cultural Revolution. In his opinion, official claims of 'technical problems' were not the reason.
Producers of the film 'Berlin, I Love You' have cited Chinese influence as the reason they cut Ai Weiwei's segment. The artist told DW that the Berlin International Film Festival suggested his section be removed.
