HOLY WARRIORS (Spain, 2006)

In many Spanish cities there are annual re-enactments of battles from the Reconquista, the recovery of the Iberian peninsula from the Moors. For days on end warriors in historic costumes parade through the streets. This re-enactment always closes with victory for the Christians. The defeated Moors have no choice than to embrace the victorious faith. Dagmar Schwelle photographed the traditional celebrations which, through the increased tension between Christians and Muslims today, has become a delicate issue. – Kiko
