Interviews with Wang Dan, number 1 on the government's most-wanted list, and Wei Jingsheng were conducted in secret in Beijing, with the remaining interviews conducted in New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and Los Angeles. the film includes extensive archival footage from the Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen Incident of 1976, the Death of Mao Zedong in 1976, the Democracy Wall movement of 1978, and the protests of 1989. This footage was supplemented by dramatic recreations of key childhood events in the life of Li Lu filmed in Taiwan and of the escape routes of several student leaders filmed in Hong Kong.
