Moving the Mountain tells the story of the 1989 pro-democracy movement in China that culminated in a massive uprising in Tiananmen Square. The student-led movement came to a tragic end when the People's Liberation Army violently cracked down on protesters firing live ammunition into the crowd and leaving hundreds dead. Through stock footage, personal interviews with witnesses, and re-enactments of events, Moving the Mountain uses the students' points of view to relive history and contemplate the future.
