The Lives of the Dissidents

The Lives of the Dissidents

"The Lech Walesa Institute is a proud partner in making The Lives of the Dissidents."

25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre

Tank Man is an icon of courage, hope, and dissent. We wanted to commemorate his stand and the massacre of protestors the day before, and we knew animation was the way to recreate it. At the same time, we wanted to provide a reflection, inspired by the events in Tiananmen Square, about the nature of dissent.
