Colourful travelogue featuring market day in the town of Chichicastenango in Guatemala.
Travelogue - Chichicastenango, Guatemala.
Nice footage of market day in the town of Chichicastenango. Men carry goods on their shoulders. Musicians play as they walk. Incense is burnt close to the church of Santo Thomas. M/Ss of people praying and swinging incense holders. An idol is blessed then carried through the market to bless the day's trading. Women in highly embroidered scarlet and pink outfits.
The "Cofrades" (members of a religious brotherhood) carry silver insignia and visit each trader in turn. Various shots of market traders. Lots of pigs are being sold at the market. They are led around on leads.
Cuts exist - see other record - quite a bit of footage not used in cut story.
