I filmed the beginning of the Cologne Carnival called the "fifth Season" which is declared open at 11 minutes past 11 on the 11th of November every year. The Carnival spirit is then temporarily suspended during the Advent and Christmas period, and picks up again in earnest in the New Year.
I spend my 11/11/11 11:11 at the Heumarkt which is a square where the fifth season is opened and thounsands of people are celebrating.
