An interesting look at the democracy movement in China
20 June 2003 | by (Eugene, Oregon) – See all my reviews

"Moving the Mountain" does an excellent job of showing the complexity of a protest movement as it develops, apparently, spontaneously. The film roots the origins of the Tiananmen Square protests in the wake of the Cultural Revolution. Although shifts in Chinese governmental policy and Glasnost in Russia gave the participants the courage to ask for a dialogue about greater democracy, the Chinese government feared the instability created by a group of people questioning the government. The film will give you a sober account of the innocence and naivety of a group of young people who simply want to make a change for the better in their country. With the continuing globalization protests and the creation of the `Patriot Acts', this film is quite relevant for a glimpse into the motivations that bring diverse groups together in a common cause, not to mention the intolerance of the people in power to the public questioning of their policies. "Moving the Mountain" provides one example of the many protest movements that occur around the world, meeting with varying levels of repression. This film is well worth viewing and may stimulate a hunger to find out more about the conditions in China as well as other protest movements.
