For me, this procession on Viernes Santo (Good Friday) by the Cofradía de Nuestro Padre Jesús de la Caída y María Santísima de la Amargura, was one of the most moving. The subject matter of the procession is Christ falling on the way to Calvary followed by Our Lady of Sorrows (literal translation Blessed Mary of Bitterness). I was amazed at how many of the penitents did the whole route barefoot. There were also a large amount of very young children in this procession; some of whom, at the end were being carried! This was also one of the guilds that didn’t have a brass band or orchestra, it just relied on percussion, which was quite hypnotic.
This was quite a tricky video to edit, and the result to me looks a little choppy. The reason is that I had to edit out a huge number of photographers and camcorder enthusiasts, who would think nothing of stepping into the middle of the procession, right in front of another camera! The result with the uncut footage here was that it looked like a procession of photographers being invaded by a few penitents. It was all good natured and there were profuse apologies from those who realised what they were doing, and, I had to apologise a couple of times myself. It takes a bit of nerve to step into the gaps, grab a a couple of minutes of video and then get out again. The reason it is possible to invade is that the processions stop every few hundred meters to give the costaleros (those carrying the floats) a chance to rest.
