This week on The Tatiana Show, we host Robert Anthony Peters, writer and director of the new award-winning short-film “Tank Man”. This drama creates a brief back-story for the unidentified young man who blocked the paths of a column of Communist Chinese military tanks in Tiananmen Square, 1989. On this episode, Robert speaks of the massive protests that fueled the timeless image that we know as “Tank Man,” a symbol of standing up for what is right, regardless of the circumstances.
Robert clues us in on the massacre that the protests created (of which 30% of the entire Beijing population marched in the streets, and were open fired on by troops) as well as his own time spent in the city of Hong Kong. We learn of the censorship that exists today, in which the Chinese government prohibits all media and verbal communication of the events that transpired in Tiananmen Square.
“Tank Man” is nothing shy of a brilliant capture of the oppressed people of China and how they marched for the freedom of the next generation. We are happy to have Robert enlighten us on the secret mass murder of millions that has been committed by the Chinese government in the last century, as well as the corrupt practices currently going on overseas in China, or what some call “The Sleeping Giant.”
We also made sure to cover the work he has done with the Fully Informed Jury Association
