Synopsis by Perry Seibert

Part of the People's Century series, Great Leap -- Communism in China documents how Mao Zedong was able to bring Communism to China. Utilizing archival footage as well as new material, the film charts Mao's rise, as well as the "cultural revolution," and the protests in Tiananmen Square. This is a fine, informative film for those with an interest in the subject matter, as well as for teachers who may find it useful in a classroom setting.
