Super Life – Friedrich Liechtenstein
Director(s): Jan Schmidt-Garre
DOP: Thomas Bresinsky
Editor: Gaby Kull-Neujahr
Friedrich Liechtenstein came to fame through his "Supergeil" commercial for the German discounter Edeka. This portrait shows the man behind the 12 million Youtube hits. Born in Stalinstadt (today: Eisenhüttenstadt) in GDR, he started as a puppet player, became an underground theatre director, then self declared pop star, almost went to the dogs as an ornamental hermit in Berlin before accidentally becoming a top celebrity.
