Visiting Speaker: History in Images by Dr. Carmelita Hinton

Director Carma Hinton will show excerpts from her film, The Gate of Heavenly Peace
(1995), as well as out-takes from the film. She will discuss her decisions on what
to include and exclude in telling the story of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protest
movement, and how these decisions affected her presentation of the events covered by
the film. She will also address the different problems that the historian encounters when presenting history in images as opposed to in words: the potential and limitation of each medium and what information each might privilege or obscure.
