Who’s Afraid of the Bogeyman
Wer fürchtet sich vorm schwarzen Mann
Portrait of a private coal carrier company in Prenzlauer Berg, East Berlin, in 1988/9. The feisty female boss runs the business with humour and understanding. Her seven male employees respect her. To the outside world, they are all tough guys, but as they describe their jobs and personal situations their vulnerability comes to light. The discussion ranges from the building of the Berlin Wall and possible escape to child abuse, suicide, prison and alcoholism.
