You could start here. Or start with this one. I watched the video you linked and I thought it was very interesting. I wish it was a little longer but what can you do. I guess the focus I am looking for is for more in depth about their practices. While the opinions of the prisoners and victims are important I would prefer a documentary not as focused on them.
I can't recommend a good documentary and I normally wouldn't go off topic like this but I just watched a really good movie about the Stasi. It's set in and called The Lives of Others. German with English subtitles.
The reason I asked is because I'm working on an essay using that movie! I just wanted a documentary for comparative purposes: But it is a great film! I just watched it randomly the other day when Netflix recommended it to me and was very impressed. The Lives of Others: The Lives of Others German: The film was released in Germany on 23 March At the same time, the screenplay was published by Suhrkamp Verlag.
The film had earlier won seven Deutscher Filmpreis awards—including those for best film, best director, best screenplay, best actor, and best supporting actor—after setting a new record with 11 nominations.
Released 17 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall marking the end of the East German socialist state, it was the first noticeable drama film about the subject after a series of comedies such as Goodbye, Lenin! This approach was widely applauded in Germany even as some criticized the humanization of Wiesler's character. Many former East Germans were stunned by the factual accuracy of the film's set and atmosphere, resembling a state which had merged with West Germany and subsequently vanished 16 years prior to the release.
Parent commenter can toggle NSFW or delete. Will also delete on comment score of -1 or less. The Stasi made many videos, some of which still survive. One of the most famous of their own videos was "Revisor" which was a trainings video. In this video, we can see how the Stasi instructed how to gather evidence and how to make the arrest quietly.
