Event description

Description

Join journalist Mike Chinoy for a screening of his film, Assignment: China – Tiananmen Square.

Thirty years have passed since students and others waved banners calling for greater freedom and official accountability in Tiananmen Square. People around the globe were deeply moved by the idealism and optimism of the demonstrators, yet dismayed by the violence that ended the demonstrations. Those seven weeks in 1989 have had a profound influence on what Americans and many others think about China. Assignment: China – Tiananmen Square tells how those stories were brought to American audiences by US news organisations in 1989.
