Manfred Krug’s story sparked an interest in getting to know more. Because it combines completeness – growing up in East Berlin, becoming an absolute star as an actor and singer, adored by the people and then disowned by the regime, he experiences the whole spectrum. Later, Manne – as his admirers call him – travels to West Germany, unaware of the success that awaits him. This documentary also offers a chance to hear from other members of the Krug era and well-known dissidents. The film proved to be very enlightening about the difficulties of the time and the fragility of the individual against the system. The screening was held on 26 June.
