SUNRISE OVER TIANANMEN SQUARE makes its TV debut

Shui-Bo Wang's Oscar nominated SUNRISE OVER TIANANMEN SQUARE makes its US TV debut Sunday, May 16 at 8 pm on HBO's Signature Channel.

SUNRISE OVER TIANANMEN also debuts in Canada on Thursday, May 27 at 9 pm and 2 am ET/PT on Vision TV. It repeats on Friday, May 28 at noon, 8 pm, and 1 am; and on Monday, May 31 at 11 am. It also airs on SCN on Friday, June 4 at 8 pm; and on TVO on Monday, June 7 at 10 pm.

Skillfully blending the personal and political, director Shui-Bo uses original artwork and archival material, providing a personal perspective on Mao's Cultural Revolution and the historic upheaval of the '70s and '80s. SUNRISE is Shui-Bo's reflection on both the idealism and intolerance of a revolutionary society.
