Abstract:

Mao Zedong understood the symbolic importance of the 1949 parade in Tiananmen Square, organized to celebrate his coming to power and to officially announce that the People's Republic of China had been established. Yet due to China's vast linguistic diversity, only a tiny fraction of the assembled crowd could understand the words that Mao spoke. In this documentary, filmmaker Peter Du Cane captures a critical moment in Chinese history through his account of the story behind the first National Day ceremony. Parade participants share memories of the planning that went into the event while Du Cane embarks on a treasure hunt to find the lost, full text of Mao's pivotal speech. (Portions with English subtitles, 52 minutes).
