Storyline

The documentary takes us on a fascinating journey into the recent German past and depicts how it defines the present. Katharina Bullin - Und ich dachte ich wär' die Größte (Katharina Bullin And I Thought I Was The Greatest) by Marcus Welsch tells a little-known story from the large stock of doping scandals in GDR competitive sports. Katharina Bullin was a volleyball player who not only lost her femininity but also her physical stability through sports and the drugs administered to her. The film is not just a moving portrait of a woman who has neither lost her will nor fighting power, but also the portrait of a brutal society. We see this in archive footage which fosters splendid illusions. Pictures from the past that are virtually transparent to us today.
