View the Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei exhibition website.

The Andy Warhol Museum and City of Asylum in conjunction with the exhibition Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei present a screening of The Blue Kite (1993) directed by Tian Zhuangzhuang. The story is told from the perspective of a young boy growing up in the 1950s and 1960s in Beijing. Though banned by the Chinese government upon its completion, and causing Tian to receive a ten-year ban on filmmaking, the film soon gained an audience worldwide.

The film is screened at Alphabet City Tent, 318 Sampsonia Way, Pittsburgh PA 15212.

Reserve a seat; visit City of Asylum’s website or call Hannah Waltz at 412.323.0278.
