The Patúm. Good and evil are partying.

Human beings do things that, seen from the outside, are not normal.

Imagine what would anyone think, someone who does not know our species, if they saw us playing and dancing with dwarves, giants and eagles, and achieve ecstasy chased by dragons and devils who spit fire with a deafening noise? Surely I would think that the human being does not have very clear neither his identity nor his destiny. And when he goes to the FIESTA he is capable of everything.

Fiesta World Wide” is a documentary series that travels the world to know the most impressive, interesting and attractive parties that humanity has created. In this chapter we will try to understand one of the oldest festivals in Europe and declared intangible heritage of Humanity by Unesco. A magical-theatrical party that plays with good and evil to, above all, have fun and if it’s all together, the better. To understand it, we will go into all its aspects and circumstances. But we will do it from a foreign point of view, which from ingenuity and ignorance will allow us to discover how hilarious, surprising, strange but always fun that humans can seem before the clean and innocent gaze of an alien.

Their opinion can be reaffirmed episode by episode.

That’s the human species. Understanding is not easy, but it’s always fun to watch.

Fiesta World Wide. Looking for the “why?” about each fiesta.
