Film details

Wer fürchtet sich vorm schwarzen Mann
by Helke Misselwitz

A close-up of Berlin coal carriers from Prenzlauer Berg. No portrayal of worker heroes or progress here. Instead, bright, deeply-felt sketches of rough men and their resolute woman boss. "Refreshing and new... A beautiful, sometimes whimsical documentation of Berlin workers. A cinematic correction of what, in general, was valued in an East German documentary."
