Experience the agony and the ecstasy alongside the believers of Malaga, Spain

This short meditative documentary filmed on the streets of Malaga, Spain during Holy Week follows a group of men struggling to carry heavy tronos (thrones) during an ancient Christian ritual. Shot largely in fluid close-up and leavened with an immersive soundtrack, the camera invites the viewer to share intimately in the social excitement that precedes the first heave, the tense grimaces that attend the act itself, and the deep feeling that follows in the ritual’s wake.
