"Círio de Nazaré, held in Belém (Brazil) since 1793, is one of the biggest Catholic processions in the world. Each year millions of pilgrims accompany the saint’s statue competing for the privilege of holding the long sisal rope that leads the carriage throughout the city streets. In disarray with the rules of the celebration, and in order to assure their relics, some promisers cut the rope in the middle of the ritual. The video brings two different fluxes closer: one linear, guided by the entirety of the rope, the other chaotic, responding to the cut." -- http://www.loop-barcelona.com/2014/fair/corda/
