We are delighted to be showing ‘Gruß vom Krampus’ for an alternative seasonal film screening this December in The Green Room.
Young men have fun by dressing up in frightening, elaborate Krampus costumes. Traditionally on December 5th “Krampusnacht” is when large cohorts of these “Krampuses” run through the streets of town squares around Austria merrymaking. The documentary “Greetings from Krampus” by female director Gabriele Neudecker points out why this last bastion of men is fascinating to young people in Austria and gives a glimpse of the Krampus runs as a cross between male masquerade, ritual beatings and long standing tradition. “Greetings from Krampus” is awarded with five international prizes so far.
So come along and enjoy this exclusive screening and pair it with a mulled wine and Krampus themed toastie!
