Moving portrait of an extraordinary woman. In the 1960s, Helga Feddersen became known as a comedy actress far beyond the borders of Hamburg. But beyond the flamboyant roles she played, underscored by a striking physiognomy which was both a blessing and curse, Helga Feddersen had a very different side: a vulnerable outsider to whom life had not been kind, full of creative talent and the class to be able to play her jokester roles without disillusionment. With contributions from celebrated friends and colleagues of Feddersen, Oliver Schwabe paints a portrait of a complex personality, a survivor who always gave her best.
