Experimental Documentary, 15m 35s
In this short meditative documentary filmed on the streets of Malaga, Via Dolorosa catches a group of men during an ancient religious ritual: The Semana Santa. Every year they walk “the way of Grief”. Menno Otten and his crew tackle this subject in a physical way, as if performing the same thing as the people they film: to carry the one they love most. Unique both in form and content, this short, clenched film leaves the viewer with a drastic and yet meditative experience.
