Gorbachev-Calendar-746x1024.jpg

Werner Herzog and André Singer’s riveting documentary, filled with unforgettable archive materials and based on three long interviews, provides access to, arguably, the world’s greatest living politician. Now 87 and battling illness, Mikhail Gorbachev, former General Secretary of the USSR, has slowed down. Still, gently but resolutely, he is pushing toward his goals. Herzog celebrates Gorbachev’s 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. In English, Russian, German, and Polish with subtitles. 2018. 1h32m. SEE SCHEDULE AND BUY TICKETS
