The "OLAF JAGGER" film is a mischievous, fictional documentary with German comedian Olaf Schubert as the main actor.

From the above link:

"VIP news will be buzzing when the 56th Hof International Film Festival opens with the film OLAF JAGGER by Heike Fink on 25th October 2022. The well-known artist Olaf Schubert finds an old tape in the cellar of his parents' house; it contains an interview with his mother and Mick Jagger. And that was in 1965! At that time, his parents' house was in the former GDR and the Wall was a closed border.

OLAF JAGGER now sets out on a detective mission to unearth this secret. It becomes a journey full of absurd situations and curious entanglements in the East-West conundrum. The film is about parents you can choose yourself, about rock'n'roll with a beating heart in both the West and the East. With a roguish wink at the audience, this mischievous, fictional mockumentary reflects a part of GDR history anew.

Thorsten Schaumann, artistic director: 'As soon as I heard the film title OLAF JAGGER, all my antennae were alert: Two prominent names mentioned in the same breath. What Is the connection between OLAF Schubert and Mick JAGGER? Director Heike Fink takes us on a sensitive search for identity, unearthing something truly astonishing in the process. It is the most surprising opening film that could have happened to us all.'

Director Heike Fink, born in 1968, has already received a number of awards for her documentary films and documentations, including the German Television Award and the Golden Sparrow. She is a scriptwriter, writes novels and non-fiction, and teaches at various German universities. OLAF JAGGER is her fourth work as a director. The film was produced by Ester.Reglin.Film GmbH in co-production with ZDF. Distributor Neue Visionen will be releasing the film in cinemas on 6th April 2023."

Everything is fictional in this 2023 film:

"Comedian Olaf Schubert plays the lead role of a man who finds a tape in the cellar of his parents' house on which an interview with his mother and Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger can be heard. It dates from 1965 - and that was when the house was still in the former GDR. He now sets out on a detective search for the secret behind this tape recording and gets into many absurd situations and East-West entanglements."

It's the same Olaf Schubert who in 2017 fooled the Stones-fans waiting at the Düsseldorf Hotel "Breidenbacher Hof" - [www.Bild.de] .

In an interview on 30-May-2020 with the newspaper Sächsische Zeitung said Olaf Schubert about the idea of this film:

"Q: Did you have more luck and ideas for new projects despite the [covid-19] crisis? A: Indeed. I've only just found out that I'm Mick Jagger's son. And that's going to be the subject of a documentary film that we're shooting from the summer. My mother was a journalist at the first Stones concert in Münster, actually to bring the band to the GDR. That's when it must have happened. We are now creating the father-son rapprochement as a road movie with stops in France, England and probably the Seychelles. Q: Do you think Mick Jagger will welcome you with open arms? A: Of course he will. Anything else would surprise me."

Note, that Olaf Schubert is a comedian from Dresden (Saxony), that Olaf Schubert is just his stage-name and that the Rolling Stones were in 1965 forbidden in the GDR for a long time.

There was on 30-Apr-2020 also an article with Olaf Schubert in the newspaper Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ) which mentions his Mick-Jagger-idea. But it's paywalled - [www.WAZ.de] .
