Meeting Gorbachev

Werner Herzog interviewed former head of state Mikhail Gorbachev over a six-month period and these interviews form the backdrop of this film co-directed with Andre Singer. Gorbachev emerges as an incredibly humanist politician and Herzog, an insightful and compassionate interviewer, really draws out the now 87-year-old former world leader’s grace, wisdom and commitment to peace.
