Frontline: The Tank Man 2006
Description: On June 5, 1989, one day after Chinese units expelled thousands of demonstrators from Tiananmen Square in Beijing, a solitary, unarmed protester stood his ground before a column of tanks advancing down the Avenue of Eternal Peace.

FRONTLINE investigates the mystery of the tank boy — his identity, his fate, and his significance for the Chinese leadership.

Frontline: The Tank Man Reviews:

The Frontline delivers with this inspiring but at the same time depressing documentary on "The Tiananmen Massacre", or what many Chinese remembered as, "June 4th".Establishing the context from which the international icon, "the tank man" was originated, the documentary takes us through the happening in the past, while notably tackles the problems in the present. Though lacking some features and pending some inaccuracies, it is well emphasized and well presented.There are some bits I would like to mission out:1, When the first time units are deployed to the city, citizens surround trucks and test to talk the troops out if it, they are not exactly in a "this-is-our-city-why-are-you-here-get-out" mindset as implied by the narrator, instead they test to soften the troops with the perception that the folks and the units are an inseparable family. Only when you understand this "fish and water" mentality with regard to relationship between common folks and soldiers, can you understand how much of a shock it was to all Chinese in the ensuing violence showdown.2, It is a fact that many (or most rather) young folks in China today haven't a faintest concept what June 4th incident is, allow alone "the tank man". But as far as I know many Peking University students know "June 4th", and some of them discuss the topics on BBS openly. It seemed "The tank man" is a more iconic figure to foreigners than to the Chinese, the censorship on this topics in China certainly contributed mostly to that, but there is more. To Chinese who are well aware of "June 4th", the picture of soldiers' head hanging on a tree or a road lamp, or the picture of a chunk of flattened meat on the ground, leaves an infinitely more vivid tag on Chinese hearts. To us, "June 4th" is not about "the tank man", it was our reality, the only thing left for us is depression.3, As pointed out in some discussion boards, the find term "Tiananman Square" the producer uses on google to prove the mission that Google.cn is heavily censored, are now not effective. Firstly, "Tiananman Square" or more precisely "天安门" can mean many things another than "June 4th" to many Chinese, it is a zone where a fair share of the country's significant happenings took place, it is also a major tourist attraction; Secondly and similarly, the term "June 4th" can mean many things another than "the tank man" to us. I would think EVEN without any censorship, searching "Tiananman Square" in Google.cn will yield very few, if any effects with "the tank man's" picture on them. Some easy find on Google.cn can prove that. If anyone interested, you can copy and paste these find term and go to Google.cn to see for yourself: "89天安门广场事件" ('89 Tiananmen incident'), "64事件" ('64 incident'), and "六四" ('64').As you can see, even with its heavily censored state, Google.cn would yield effects of more specific topics, as indicated by the pictures. "The tank man" just has less overall impact on us, compared to another horrifying pictures and stories.The documentary has its historical value as well as contemporary social value. Today's China still breeds the issues that can provoke the mass, it still provides the soil on which social unrest continues to spawn. I often quote, "Those who do not learn from the past, are doomed to repeat it".But have we learned? Would we?


In fact,many chinese young folks didn't know 64shijian(Chinese word).We find 64 in Baidu(the largest softwares like google in our country),the page jump to other content.The first time I heard 6.4 is in middle school.I'm 12 that time.My classmate's father attended the activity(not in Beijing) .Last year,my uncle talked with his mate when was driving car.He said,nearly all folks who attend the 1989 was punished.They won't be trusted.Many company refused to agree them.Yes,it's real. However,the concludsions about farmers in vedio are wrong.The goverment pay much attention to education.To say the truth,if some one wish to go to school,most families can afford it!It's cheap to go to school. It's also not true about workers.13hours/Day?no hoilday?Nonexistent!At that time,my parents worked 8hours a day.Thay can receive one day to have a rest per week.Sometimes,they need to work over time,but they should receive additional money. Maybe we don't have enough democracy,but I'm OK!
