Saddling of a Mule – Tableau 1

2021 | 9 min
DOP: Elena Álvarez Lutz

In one shot: a mule is saddled for work. Every movement, every move is part of a precise choreography – a performance that is performed every morning, without an audience.
The work is the first part of a series about customs and traditions of rural Spain that resist modernity.
