23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
A confrontational dialogue between Werner Herzog and the last Soviet president is the core of a portrait made up primarily of archival and illustrative footage against the background of which Herzog’s hypnotic voice reflects on Gorbachev’s political career, including the eras of perestroika and glasnost, through his tragic end.
Werner Herzog (1942) has been making films since the late 1960s. His oeuvre comprises over 40 documentaries and over 20 feature films. André Singer (1945) works primarily as a film producer.
