“In Galicia, Spain’s most northwestern region, one of the oldest forms of Carnival takes place every year. Spread over several days are parades with felos and peliqueiros, characters who wear spectacular outfits, including a striking mask and a belt strung with large cowbells. Another tradition is the farrapada, in which participants pelt each other with rags covered in mud. There is also a fight in which flour and ants are thrown on the participants, and a huge model ant towers above the crowd.”

Released Monday 8 March at 18.00. The movie was available for streaming for 48 h.
