Karambolage Glücksschwein

Karambolage/ Glücksschwein

This was a work for Arte done in 2011. Karambolage is a TV show that is shown in Germany and in France and explains customs of the other country. In this case it is about the Glücksschwein, which means literally translated Lucky Pig. Foreigners sometimes find it weird that in Germany you might be presented with a little figurine of a pig before an exam. These figurines are used as lucky charms and often made of marzipan. The film explains the origins of this custom.
