That picture looks a lot older than one from 1989 would look. Is it a screenshot from a docuentary?

And I'm claiming ignorance, but who is that? Che?

Mom's closer than BE. She's the female boss of a coal carriers' crew in Berlin. It's a shot from a documentary called Who's Afraid of the Bogeyman (Wer furchtet sich vorm schwarzen Mann).

That is amazing. I want to know what's in the bottles on the table.

Me, too, but I literally can't find anything else about her or this film.

Ms. Moon said...

Ah yeah. I know a beautiful woman when I see one, even if I doubt myself.

I'd like to see the documentary.
