Casteller from Mike Randolph on Vimeo.
In the city of Tarragona, Spain, castellers gather every two years to see who can build the highest, most intricate human castles. This uniquely Catalan tradition requires astonishing strength, finesse, and balance. Not to mention courage.
I broke my back twice, so watching this, and seeing the low man on the totem pole trembling, was painful to me.
Bravest of all are the children who scramble up and down.
Human castles are natural, right? Or...?
I like the use of a one word title for this video, that seems avant garde.
I love the music in this video.
