Play with the Devil - Becoming Zeal & Ardor poster
Age rating / classification to be confirmed


With his band Zeal & Ardor Swiss musician Manuel Gagneux was catapulted overnight from the underground to the big stages of the world. The bold mix of Black Metal and old work songs and field hollers by African-American slaves - his answer to a racist provocation on the Internet - is politically explosive. Religion, racism, segregation and appropriation: With his music Gagneux is questioning and breaking taboos. But being praised as a new kind of leader by his fans frightens the introverted artist. How can he deal with the oversized expectations?

No upcoming screenings.
