“Come Together” is a documentary about the American Soviet Peace Walk from Leningrad to Moscow in the summer of 1987.
The aim of the Walk was to help end the Cold War between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R., by “ending the arms race nobody wants.”
About 250 American and 250 Soviet citizens took part, walking over 450 kilometers from the city of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) to Russia’s capital of Moscow.
The documentary also includes footage from the first-ever joint U.S.-Soviet rock concert on July 4, 1987, which marked the culmination of the Peace Walk.
“Come Together” was jointly produced by the American and Soviet filmmakers. The film has been digitized and made available online by the International Peace Walk (IPW) Inc. and the Our Move Archive.
