The Bodies

Eloy Domínguez SERÉN
Spain 2020 11min DCP color Documentary G Asian Premiere
Overview

Each year in Galicia, one of the oldest forms of carnival is celebrated. Characters wear spectacular costumes, which include showy masks and a belt from which hang large and sonorous cowbells, and they run through the village, beating the visitors with their whips.

Review

The film is filled with vivid images of a festival which is held every February in Ourense, Spain. When the music bounces all the alleys of the town, people dress up in costumes and go out to throw mud at each other, enjoying the fiesta. As the spirit soars, people’s body movements become more intense and passionate, making the whole scene look like a religious ritual. The camera never hesitates to join this ritual. The Bodies shows us, in a powerful way, how was human contact before these times of social distancing. (Sung MOON)
