For three decades, it symbolized the chasm between East and West, a brutal, grey barrier which divided a city and was a constantly-simmering focal point of the Cold War. But on November 9, 1989, the long-oppressed citizens of East Berlin broke the first chink in its 96 miles of concrete and barbed wire, signaling the start of one of history's most dramatic political transformations.
Drawing on formerly secret archives from both sides of the Wall and the memories of those who risked their lives to cross the deadly barrier, DECLASSIFIED: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE WALL presents all the detail and drama in a non-stop, fast-moving montage cut to a rock and roll beat. Featuring rare footage, insider reports and interviews with pivotal figures like Mikhail Gorbachev, this is an unforgettable portrait of a Cold-War icon.
