Title

FRONTLINE; Gate of Heavenly Peace, The

Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

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. By giving these ignored voices their place in history, the film reveals an ongoing debate in China concerning the importance of personal responsibility and moral integrity.
