Michaïl Gorbachov, Russian Enigma

In 1998 Van Erven Drens went to Moscou with the journalist and Eastern Europe specialist Tijn Sadée to interview Michaïl Gorbachov. The result was the short documentary  Russian Enigma. It was the first time that this former world leader and ex-president of the Soviet Union spoke so openly about his leadership and his heritage. The film was selected for the Rotterdam Film Festival.
