Movie Reviews

Moving the Mountain
D. Armstrong | 07/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was a wonderful viedo! The documentary is a little long, however, there is such a mixture of commentary from the students who demonstrated at Tiananmen Square and actual footage of the events that took place, that it made you want too watch this viedo all the way through. The viedo has been a useful tool in helping the students in a classroom setting learn about collective behavior; what it takes to make it happen, its possible out-come, as well as the physical and emotional toll it can take upon its participants. I highly recommend this viedo."
The personal lives of the leaders of Tiananmen Square.

"Very moving account of the personal lives and struggles of five leaders in this truly grass roots movement. As a documentary it really sparkled because it was not at all dry or melodramatic, and yet there was a lot of interesting detail. Really gives you a lot of food for thought."
