SEMANA SANTA IN SEVILLA (Spain, 1995)

For centuries the Spanish city of Seville has held processions in Holy Week, preceding Easter. To the sound of trumpets and heavy drums thousands of people shuffle past, their faces and bodies shrouded in outfits with tall, pointed hoods. They bear heavy statues of saints and crosses, which are touched by people along the route. The processions can last for twelve hours, and generally take place in the burning sun.
