1989

Oscar-nominated director Anders Østergaard is best known for his ability to bring the past to life before our very eyes. In 1989, he ventures deep into the high-risk political game that led to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Europe, revisiting the secret rooms where political battles were fought and history made. The film uses a cutting edge approach to documentary re-enactments, interwoven with testimonials and archive material to create a rich and cinematic tapestry of events.
