THE END OF THE PIG IS THE BEGINNING OF THE SAUSAGE

A portrait of the writer Napoleon Seyfarth, whose books, “Schweine müssen nackt sein” (Pigs Should Be Naked) and “Schwein oder Nicht-Schwein” (To Pig or not to Pig) have achieved cult status. There are, so the books say, answers “to life” and death. Napoleon Seyfarth was an Aids activist and a flamboyant figure in Berlin’s gay scene. He died of Aids in the year 2000.
