Gate of Heavenly Peace

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/gate/

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: The film "Gate of Heavenly Peace" documents the history of the 1989 pro-democracy movement and reflects the drama, tension, humor, absurdity, heroism, and many tragedies of the six weeks from April to June in 1989. Through this process, the film reveals how the hard-liners within the government marginalized moderates among the protesters (including students, workers and intellectuals), while the actions of radical protesters undermined moderates in the government. Moderate voices were gradually cowed and then silenced by extremism and emotionalism on both sides. This site a wealth of resources on the event. Standard 10.10.2

Comments: This seems to be a balanced interpretation of the history of the democratic movement in China and it is recommended by PBS.
