In the heart of winter, a very ancient ritual to secure prosperity and good harvests is held throughout Europe, at the original core of what is commonly known as Carnival. This film is made under the assumption that Carnival reveals similar actions and similar characters, cast in very similar original patterns all over Europe. In this sense, Carnival’s ephemeral kingdom of misrule can be said to be one of the longer lasting in European history, and Carnival himself a veritable “King of Europe”.

Film produced within CARNIVAL KING OF EUROPE. A European project of visual anthropology by the Museo degli Usi e Costumi della Gente Trentina, with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union (www.carnivalkingofeurope.it).
