Meeting Gorbachev

Meeting Gorbachev

2019, NR, 90 min. Directed by Werner Herzog, Andre Singer.

Not reviewed at press time. Two legends – one of cinema, one of politics – meet as Werner Herzog sits down with former Secretary of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev, and discuss how the world changed through cooperation rather than conflict, and what can and should be learned from glasnost.
