The FILM-DOCUMENTARY: THE WAY of PASSION
A film by Joerg & Brigitta Burger, 2011
(in Italian with English subtitles, 89 minutes)
The Good Friday procession in Trapani, Sicily is an annual ritual that has survived in the town for 400 years ...
Without intruding, the filmmakers manage to capture the celebrations surrounding this remarkable festival through the entire town, from the men carousing the night before, to women parading as Christ's brides, to the deeply moving processional itself ...
As villagers watch the local menfolk bearing the weight of the CROSS of Christ on their shoulders: "The groups of men are a feast for the eyes . . . one cannot get enough of watching. The magic of this ritual seems to be enduring their suffering together" — Brigitta Burger-Utzer.
