Just noticed that a movie called '1989' is opening CPHOX (Copenhagen international documentary film festival)

Will be shown simultaneously across Europe.
Sounds like a 'must see' for 1989 fans

Trailer looks awesome. The May Day celebration was not really part of the 40th anniversary celebration, which was October 7, but not a big deal. Looks like they focus on Nemeth in Hungary more than Poland. He is in the picture used for the Nagy Reburied and Social Democratic Platform Adopted events. Hope to hear more about this if anyone has a link.

It was on Danish TV yesterday and can be streamed from here:
http://www.dr.dk/tv/se/1989/1989 (probably required a danish IP address and ability to either read danish - or understand hungarian, german and english :-)

I liked it.

Its a "drama documentary" with Nemeth as the main character.

They mix old footage with new footage to create a dramatic story.
E.g. they take an old video of Gorbatjov talking on the phone and replace the audio with an actors voice to recreate a scene - as it might have happened.

But its pretty obvious when they do it - so you don't feel cheated into believing that its real footage.
