Description

I found this film on a disk when going through some old papers - not sure where I got it from. With Ebola fears growing around the planet, it seems like a good time to remember Beijing under lockdown in the spring of 2003: quarantines, travel bans, road closures, and foreign business people fleeing. The film was made by Ai Weiwei and his younger brother Ai Dan. I asked Ai Weiwei for permission to upload it, and he gave me permission via Twitter direct message. The credits are: Production / writing: Ai Weiwei Camera and editing: Ai Dan Songs courtesy of Zuoxiao Zuzhou
