A year that reshaped the world. 1989 marked the rapid destruction of the Iron Curtain that had divided Europe for more than four decades. østergaard charts how the actions of Hungary's young and forward-thinking prime minister Miklós Neméth galvanised hundreds of thousands of East German refugees to force their way into the West. Constructed from interviews, news footage and reconstructions, 1989 is a fascinating glimpse into the darkened corridors of power.
