Correfoc: Run with the Devil in Spain
Palma de Mallorca
By Marisa Candia Cadavid and Carwyn Jones
23 Jun 2016

Every summer, Spanish Mediterraneans celebrate the day of Sant Joan with screeching fireworks, demented devils, fire-breathing dragons and raging bonfires. Evil spirits are chased away by 'dimonis' - devils - and the public are allowed to join in with little respect for health and safety.

The origins of 'correfoc' - fire-running - date back to the 12th century. In Palma de Mallorca, as elsewhere in Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands, running with the devil eludes the attempts of the European Union to regulate its safety. It continues much as it always has.

El Concert
Barcelona
By Marisa Candia Cadavid and Carwyn Jones
25 Sep 2011

In 1974, a group of Catholic priests defied the censors of the Franco dictatorship in Spain and put on two nights of concerts by the Chilean folk protest band, Quilapayún. The concerts were a symbol of resistance and brotherhood against the military dictatorships of Franco and Pinochet in Chile, that had just begun.

Vivianne Candia, a recent Chilean exile, was among six thousand people who went to the first concert at the Palau Blaugrana in Barcelona to sing along with the anthem of Quilapayún, ‘El Pueblo Unido Jamás Será Vencido’ (The People United Will Never Be Defeated).

38 years later, we contacted the organisers and reunited them with Vivianne, who was eternally grateful of this grand effort of solidarity and risk that would give hope to an entire generation of Chilean exiles in Spain.

In Catalan and Castilian Spanish without English subtitles. To view with English subtitles, go to http://www.anorakfilms.com/project/el-concert and press CC on the Vimeo bar.

Petroli No!

12 Oct 2014

In 2014, the citizens of a small group of Mediterranean islands stood up against a powerful oil prospection company. The seismic testing and fracking planned not only could jeapordise the natural habitat of the Balearic Islands, but also the tourism model that economically sustains many residents. What began as the rebel actions of a few, soon became a full scale battle. The result of the battle remains uncertain, yet what is clear is that the fight of Balears Diu No! continues.

November 2014 and the news continues to look grim for the Spanish Royals. Princess Cristina faces the real prospect of being the very first member of the monarchy to be hauled in front of a judge on tax fraud charges. Her husband, Iñaki Urdangarín, will join her. He also faces charges of money laundering and embezzlement of public funds.

The Spanish public are becoming used to political corruption and their faith in King Juan Carlos dipped to record levels before his abdication in June 2014. His son and sucessor, King Felipe VI, has quickly restored some public face. The likely trial next year of his sister, Cristina, will test this new found resolve.
