The hilarious and heart-breaking true coming-of-age tale about living as a university student in China in 1988-1989 and working for CNN during the Tiananmen Square Uprising. Ann tells the story of China on the brink of change from the voice of an old woman with bound feet to a heroic hunger striker. Today in China there is an entire generation in the dark about the events of June 4, 1989 – it is forbidden to discuss. With the current Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, TIANANMEN ANNIE is as poignant a story today as it was 26 years ago.
