DONZELLE is 'pussy-core kitsch-hop, trilingual party rap' from Montréal. With almost hurting sincerity Roxanne Arsenault raps about life, love, men. The group plays with clichés and body consciousness. Obviously, they are having fun on stage.



Pierre-Yves Beaulieu, D/CDN, 17min
(Bavarian with german and english subtitles)

In the Alpine winter night, Saint-Nicholas comes accompanied by his monster-like companions, the Krampus. For centuries, the scary creatures have been in charge of disciplining children to ensure good behavior in the coming year. Is the Krampus good or bad?
