Movie Theatre Addresses      

Should you want to support the film production, you can simply purchase a DVD.

It is fascinating to see the emotions brought forth by Fastnacht. For some it is the most wonderful time of the year while others have an almost allergic reaction to it. But what is the reason for this? This ethnological documentary gives insight and promotes discussions about the true meaning of Fastnacht. The french canadian director sheds new light on an old swabian alemannic tradition. Not only fastnacht enthusiasts but even more so, those who want to know what fastnacht is will appreciate this film.

"This Documentary fits perfectly with our efforts to have the swabian alemannic recognized as UNESCO Immaterial cultural heritage" says Jürgen Hohl. Adding: This film is much more than a mere description of fastnacht, it is a time capsule.

Comment from spectator:
"I was profoundly impressed, the film reflects the spirit and addresses the issues raised by fastnacht. The film is suited for every audience."
Rainer Domfelt, President of the ortenauer Narrenbund
