Meeting Gorbachev (TBC) (PG)

Director Werner Herzog. Documentary/Biography/History

Filled with unforgettable archive materials, Werner Herzog’s latest is a riveting documentary celebrating Gorbachev's many remarkable achievements. In his usual deadpan way Herzog makes a fine interviewer who does not disguise his affection for arguably, the world's most influential living politician. Gorbachev not only negotiated successfully with the U.S. to reduce nuclear weapons, but also gave up Soviet control of Eastern Europe allowing for the reunification of Germany and paving the way for the complete dissolution of the Soviet Union. All in six years! Thirty years on from the fall of the Berlin Wall this is a dramatic reminder of the drastic and unforeseeable ways the world can change for the better. “a riveting and moving portrait” Epire Winner Audience Award Biografilm Festival 2019
