Synopsis
Sibylle Berg provokes somehow.
Her life story from GDR refugee up to bestselling author sounds mythical. Previously Sibylle Berg searched for good fortune, now she's looking for a house.
In this portrait of the great ironic dramatist we learn the male word for 'author', why they often have to hold their heads on author-fotographs, what kind of useful things (like diving under ice) you could learn in GDR, how fungi control the brains of politicians – and that behind every shy author there’s a shy person.

With: Sibylle Berg, Katja Riemann, Helene Hegemann, James Goldstein, Olli Schulz
