Description

Asian Studies Film Series: The Tank Man (Anthony Thomas, 2006) On June 5, 1989, one day after the Chinese army's deadly crushing of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests in Beijing, a single, unarmed young man stood his ground before a column of tanks on the Avenue of Eternal Peace. Seventeen years later, veteran filmmaker Anthony Thomas goes to China in search of "The Tank Man." Who was he? What was his fate? And what does he mean for a China that today has become a global economic powerhouse? (Chinese with English subtitles)
