Lo sentimos – from time to time we’re guilty of posting pictures of our cats, a thrashing lizard’s tail and loads of goats, but surely this takes the prize for the town’s most boring video – all 04:47 minutes of it. Even the six-word opening title fills the screen for a sleep-inducing 17 seconds.
But then the fun starts: there’s a wooden bench, a blue car, two men chatting, a close-up of a flower (with irrigation tubing) and the top of someone’s head. At one stage, a person carries a banner of sorts – in London, it would say ‘McDonalds this way’.
The fountain is sweet but the grand finale surpasses everything. At 04:04, Órgiva church is lovingly showered with stars and Hong Kong appears in black and white accompanied by some World War 2 search lights. Maybe Órgiva is twinned with Hong Kong, or the East End of London, who knows.
It ends with the moon, possibly the dark side.
The place featured – Placeta del Barrio Luque – can be home to some fantastic music, processions and the like. This week we’ll post more about it.
* Órgiva’s serial video chronicler actually deserves the prize. More another time (if we can even bring ourselves to promote his magna opera).
