Mein Name ist Angst

Eliza Plocieniak-Alvarez


Whether in the dark, when a dog barks at us, or when we have to speak in front of a running camera: Everyone knows fear. It is not popular. Yet it fulfils important tasks every day. The likeable ball of wool would like to give an interview. No fear – or is it better?
