Meeting Gorbachev


Werner Herzog, André Singer

UK / USA / Germany / 2018 / English, Russian / 92 minutes / DCP / Color

Speaking face to face with the former Soviet head of state, the prolific director illuminates a visionary leader who helped end the Cold War and a passionate human who misses his beloved wife. Through interviews and a deep archive of footage, Herzog (42nd) traces Gorbachev’s legacy from his architecture of Perestroika and Glasnost to the elimination of nuclear weapons, injecting poetry and tragic irony into the narrative of a great man’s life and adding a rueful note of our world today.
