  • Gorbachev. Heaven wins at IDFA 2020


    GORBACHEV. HEAVEN by Vitaly Mansky won the Award for Best Directing in the Feature-Length Competition at IDFA 2020.

    Jury statement: "This intimate portrait of a great man in decline is distinguished by an outstanding directorial hand, whether that is evidenced by the artistic decisions surrounding the portrayal and framing of the USSR’s last leader alone and vulnerable in his diminished surroundings, or in the interrogation of the witness as to his recollection of the events that define him and the world. All these choices lead to a vivid picture of a man who changed the world, which at times is tender, at others even humorous."
