The Gate of Heavenly Peace" is the first film to tell the story of Tiananmen from a Chinese perspective, presenting a wide range of views concerning the struggle for a better society. The film follows the fate of the moderate "third way" of Chinese political debate and civic action, which has remained largely unnoticed by the Western media.
