Synopsis
Born in 1953, Sascha Anderson was the charismatic pop star of East Berlin's oppositional literary scene in Prenzlauer Berg in the eighties, a close acquaintance of Christa Wolf, Franz Fühmann and Heiner Müller. He was also a zealous informer working for the GDR's secret police. Twenty years on, the lies and half-truths he inflicted on friends and colleagues still raises tempers. Here, we sit down with Sascha Anderson to find out what prompted him to act as he did and discover what he thinks about it today.
