Tank Man: GodArchy Podcast #24

Would you stand in protest in front of a column of tanks? Tank Man did.

You’ve almost certainly seen the iconic photo of the man standing in front of a column of Chinese tanks in Tiananmen Square. Nobody knows who that man was nor anything about his fate.

Robert Anthony Peters wrote and directed a film about Tank Man. It powerfully dramatizes the hours leading up to that historic moment.

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk to Peters about the film, along with the broader implications of those events, including the power of non-violent resistance.

In the process of screening the film. Peters has spent time in Hong Kong and has had an opportunity to talk with some of the protesters. During the interview, he also shares his perspective during the interview.
