Beijing, May, 1989. The world watched as a hundred students became a thousand, a thousand became ten thousand, as thousands became a million - and a nation starved of freedom, cried out for a taste of democracy. In this compelling film, director Michael Apted (Nell, Gorillas in the Mist), captures the power and passion of the Tiananmen Square uprising through a unique combination of newsreel footage, dramatic re-enactments and extensive input form the actual student leaders. Exploring their personal histories, reflections and thoughts on the future. 'Moving the Mountain' paints a portrait of courage, conviction, and commitment that the New York Post calls, "A soaring - and sobering - tribute to the human spirit".
