A hero of our time. An intimate portrait of a music professor turned head of state, whose love of his country and hatred of communism made history.
Vytautas Landsbergis is a music professor and a charismatic leader of the Lithuanian independence movement. In 1990, he took his country out of the Soviet Union and forced Gorbachev to recognise its sovereignty. 30 years after the historic collapse of the USSR, Mr Landsbergis shares the hidden story behind his nation's fight for independence. Combining interview and archive footage, Sergei Loznitsa paints a mesmerising portrait of a man who made history.
