Rick Minnich is an award winning American independent filmmaker based in Berlin, Germany. He lived on both sides of the Iron Curtain, and has dedicated his life to helping Americans and Russians understand that they have a whole lot more in common than most realize. Our conversation focuses on his latest film The Strait Guys, which is being released theatrically in Europe during June. It’s the incredible true story of a group of US and Russian visionaries who are trying to link their countries via the world’s longest train tunnel beneath the Bering Strait. The InterContinental Railway would be the “Panama Canal of the 21st century” and promises to bring “peace, progress, and prosperity” to all humankind.
