Meeting Gorbachev
is a new feature-length documentary by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog and Emmy Award winning director André Singer. Mikhail Gorbachev, former president of the Soviet Union, sits down with Herzog to discuss his many achievements. Topics include the talks to reduce nuclear weapons, the reunification of Germany and the dissolution of his country.

“What makes Meeting Gorbachev most interesting is the way we see Herzog shape the narrative through his questions, narration, and filmmaking skills. He skips over certain chapters of Mikhail Gorbachev’s life and focuses heavily on the way the Russian leader fought for reform, particularly of the nuclear variety, and how his efforts have impacted the world today. As one might imagine from one our most humanist documentarians, Meeting Gorbachev isn’t dense with political dissection as much as it uses Gorbachev’s time in office as a commentary on nuclear proliferation and the issues that combat world unity.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
