Meeting Gorbachev

Greek Premiere
The life of Mikhail Gorbachev, the eighth and last President of the Soviet Union, as seen through the eyes of the brilliant and eccentric director Werner Herzog. Gorbachev, the architect of Perestroika and Glasnost, now 87, maintains his wit, reminding the man he used to be back when the planet was amidst the two superpowers.
