Werner Herzog and André Singer’s riveting documentary, filled with unforgettable archive materials and based on three never before seen interviews, provides incredible access to, arguably, the world’s greatest living politician. Now 88 and battling illness, the visionary Mikhail Gorbachev, the former General Secretary of the U.S.S.R, is still gently but resolutely pushing towards 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. All of this in six years! Herzog and Singer explore pivotal moments in history through a series of exclusive one on one interviews with the man who ended the Cold War.
