      Nocera Terinese, a small town in the Calabria region – Southern Italy – is the scenario of a millenary ritual that represents the expression of a people’s identity, which struggles to keep its tradition unaltered through time. During the Holy Week prior the Easter celebrations, the village goes through an intense spiritual and practical preparation for the big event that takes place in the weekend. The statue of Mary is taken out from its enshrine to be venerated and prepared for the procession in which it will encounter the Vattienti. These figures, who beat their legs with the Cardo and the Rosa (two pieces of cork, one of which has 13 fragments of glass in it), represent the sufferings of Jesus at the column, and are attached to the Ecce Homo, or the representation of Jesus wearing red while on trial. Although many have criticized this ritual for being “violent” it is vital to understand the importance it has in affirming the essence of the people who practice it, which feel an extremely strong sense of belonging to the town and a bound to the soul of their culture during this interesting expression of identity. "Tales of a Ritual" is a documentary of visual anthropology that tries to tell this story, reaching beyond the superficial level of the blood and the beating to explain the importance and depth of the tradition. The final movie will focus on all that is around the ritual, entering the intimate level of the personal experience for the ones who take part in it. Direction, Video and Stills: Ruben Salvadori Editing: Yuval Shapira www.rubensalvadori.com stills on the website shot on canon 5d canon 24-70mm 2.8 nikon 50mm 1.8 The complete movie will be released in 2012.
