Dirt for Dinner

Neglected as a child, Meffire eventually found order and approval among the Dresden police and was hailed as a symbol of diversity in a nationwide ad campaign. But overnight celebrity fed the young man's emotional instability, and after quitting the force he drifted into a life of crime. This 2000 German documentary by Branwen Okpako of Nigeria probes the disconnect between ethnicity and ideology even as it traces the rise and fall of a narcissistic personality. In German with subtitles. 75 min.
