Part of the Herzog of the Month Season
Werner Herzog partners with André Singer for this riveting documentary about Mikhail Gorbachev, the eighth and final president of the Soviet Union. Even after almost two decades of being out of office, Gorbachev's name still rings in the ears of politicians today. Herzog's unique lense looks at the man who made sweeping changes to one of the most powerful nations in the world, and celebrates his three remarkable accomplishments: negotiations with the U.S. to reduce nuclear weapons; cessation of Soviet control of Eastern Europe and the reunification of Germany; and the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc.
The preview screening at 6.00pm on Tue 5 Nov will be followed by a Q&A with co-director André Singer.
