Meeting Gorbachev

Meeting Gorbachev



Language: English, German, Russian, Polish
Translation: Bulgarian subtitles
Genre: Documentary
UK/Germany/USA, 2019, 90'
Director: Werner Herzog, Andre Singer
It’s the first time that Herzog focuses so directly on a politician, though he makes no bones about his admiration for the now 87-year-old statesman and Nobel Peace Prize winner.


By the same token, it’s a first for Mikhail Gorbachev, too, to let himself be questioned by an artist who avowedly is looking for a sound that’s different from what a professional journalist wants to hear and provoke. In his latest documentary, Herzog follows significant stations of Gorbachev’s political and personal career on a new quest for ecstatic moments behind factual truths.
