San Fermin

France, 1964 (MIFF 1966, Programme 13)

Director: Robert Destanque

This film gives a colourful account of the traditional feast of St. Fermin in the Spanish town of Pamplona. The humdrum of everyday life stops, and the menfolk give themselves to the joys of singing, dancing, drinking and bullfighting for eight days and nights.
