The latest news on this front comes from a really interesting article by Cartoonist Right Network International:
A new film by Australian documentarian Danny Ben-Moshe will be broadcast on ABC next week, covering the career of the exiled Chinese cartoonist and street-artist Badiucao and marking the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square civil rights protest and subsequent massacre.
When last we heard from Badiucao he was preparing to mount his first major solo gallery exhibition of work. This event in Hong Kong, set for November 2018, was cancelled at very short notice amid security concerns.
Although quiet since then the artist has not been idle. A new documentary directed by acclaimed film-maker Danny Ben-Moshe (CODE OF SILENCE, BREAKING THE SILENCE, MY MOTHER’S LOST CHILDREN), produced by Identity Films and developed with backing from Screen Australia, Film Victoria and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation will be shown on June 4th, the 30th anniversary of the notorious and iconic events that took place on Tiananmen Square in 1989. In CHINA’S ARTFUL DISSIDENT Badiucao travels the globe, inspired by “Tank Man” – the lone protestor who stared down the Red Army’s ordinance as they rolled onto the square. He meets fellow survivors and exiled citizens, all while continuing to create work that confronts China’s human rights record.
