A legal dispute over remembering Tiananmen

Twenty years ago today, Chinese troops cleared Tiananmen Square. Hundreds, possibly thousands of people were killed in and around the square. Chinese students had been calling for democracy and free speech. The World's Mary Kay Magistad reports from Beijing on an ongoing legal dispute over a documentary about the 1989 Tiananmen crackdown called "The Gate of Heavenly Peace". The case pits the filmmakers against one of the student demonstrators.
