Event Description

MOCA will screen the award-winning feature-length documentary The Gate of Heavenly Peace. The film chronicles the turbulent weeks of the 1989 protests, offering portraits of both the Chinese government and activists in Tiananmen Square. The binary opposition between Communists and anti-Communists has left little middle ground left for the rational and thoughtful proponents of positive reform in China. The Gate of Heavenly Peace crafts a nuanced history of one of the most watched yet least understood stories of our time.

 

Carma Hinton, the film’s director and a leading scholar on contemporary China, will introduce the film and participate in a Q&A session. Together with Richard Gordon, Hinton has directed thirteen documentary films about China. She received a Ph.D. in Art History from Harvard University and has held teaching positions at Swarthmore, Wellesley, Northeastern, and MIT. She is currently Robinson Professor of Visual Culture and Chinese Studies at George Mason University
