3D printing is changing the world — from printing guns and human organs to dismantling the world’s industrial infrastructure by enabling home manufacturing. It’s “the next Industrial Revolution.” For the first time in history, the stories of the human beings building an industry have been filmed. The result: this absorbing award winner, which follows the people racing to bring 3D printing to our desktops and into our lives. For the winners, there are fortunes — and history — to be made.

After 81 days of solitary detention, internationally renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is put under house arrest. He suffers from sleeping disorder and memory loss, 18 cameras are monitoring his studio and home 24/7, police agents follow his every move, and heavy restrictions from the Kafkaesque Chinese authorities weigh him down. Picking up where Alison Klayman's "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry" left off, "Ai Weiwei the Fake Case" is more explicitly political, reflecting Ai's battle against the gigantic lawsuit thrust upon him by the Chinese government in an effort to silence him.
