Berlinale-column : the woman behind The Berlinale bears

Awesome, what's going on behind the Scenes, everything. The bear of Berlinale, for example, the eating of blood sausage. "It's a nice winter dish," says Almut Fischer, and stroking her blond hair back here in the old GDR - dining restaurant in the midst of the newly coiffed Prenzlauer Berg.

you will know this blond hair you see on every festival poster, as you look out a bear costume. And on each cinema ticket. Almut Fischer is not less than the Berlinale itself, anywhere in the city as the bear. "This is surreal," says the 30-Year-old. And that's how everything shoots at this Festival, to be excessive.

A real Berlin-Film

Actually wanted to be Almut Fischer, the journalist. But then your living in a real Berlin turned-movie. Grew up in the same 300-souls - village such as Matthias Sammer, fascinated by the children's trip to the Berlin TV tower, influenced by the record collection of the father, even from the view of their parents in the Stasi files, as the largest GZSZ-Fan and recent youth page editor in Riesa took it, clearly, to Berlin.

card abreißerin was at the Berlinale. Laundress at Berghain ("I just called because I lived right next door.") Friedrichshainerin, in whose house "the lives of Others" is rotated. Now you is likely to be rather random about your scout Agency "Deebeephunky", the face of the Berlinale. Any Director would reject a script.

"in The end, I had muscle soreness"

Since you are so on a gray, cold evening at the Fehrbelliner Platz. In The Bear Costume. Buses honked. A homeless man took care of her Makeup. And you had the bear's head, which reminded them of an East German fairy tale film, in the Hand – to put it on for the photo and down, up and down. "In the end, I had muscle soreness." But again, what you are experiencing. Not just Hip-Hop concerts, Alba games, Berghain nights, Berlinale international film festival-films – what do you do in Berlin, if you want to never back away from this movie called life.

If you come every day to see in the city, the role of – what? "No idea," says Almut Fischer. Since it is so such as the Berlinale: the humanization of the bear, it needs a new Story. "The thing is," says Almut Fischer. You should be a journalist.

And from the Berlinale bear, the soon-to-blood sausage.
