Full film details

Through conversations with one of the most significant figures in 20th-century politics, we are given personal access to Mikhail Gorbachev, the eighth and final leader of the Soviet Union.

Now 87, the visionary politician has slowed down but remains just as passionate as he was when in office as he talks through his life and efforts in fighting for the betterment of his people.

Praised for triggering independence movements across all corners of the Soviet Bloc, the reunification of Germany, and ending the Cold War, the celebrated revolutionary discusses the challenges he faced in transforming a society that was so downtrodden.

Directed by Werner Herzog (Into the Inferno, Grizzly Man), who is also the interviewer in this compelling documentary, we are walked through the life of the famous Russian politician, who earned the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize for his influence and work towards democracy.

Featuring archive footage from the period, including tapes of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, this biographical feature is one to watch for anyone interested in modern history.
