this is a re-enactment of the handing over of Christ to the romans. the masked men are called Fariseos ( jews) and they deliver christ to the Romns ( red flags) . After while they break christ out of jail and parade him through the town. It is impressive to see hundreds of Mayos with drums and foot ratles running, they raise a cloud of dust that just adds to the mystery.
My project is to document the indigenous textiles of Mexico. To do this I travel to remote indigenous villages to photo and film the traditional textiles and festivals over 650 are now documented. There are over 60 different languages spoken in Mexico and I try to document all that I can reach. My home base is Mexico City. This films are part of the documentation project which is presented as a web museum at www.mexicantextiles.com . The indigenous cultures of Mexico will be brought to you in short but interesting video clips and on my blib.tv blog. Thanks for you interest. bob Freund
