 About the documentary

A human towers group is much more than people lifting human towers in their free time. This unique plot of people and personalities elevate their activity to the category of beautiful metaphor giving meaning, perhaps only intuitively, in a society in which its members feel part of everything. A society with a common goal, which shares with the same intensity, good and bad things, a society of many beats, without proper names... A corporation.

 Imagine a place where people go and feel necessary, they will feel part of a whole, sharing the good and the bitter. One organism and many beats.

 About us

We are the Xicots of Vilafranca. A human tower's group with 37 years of history and that almost three years ago commissioned Ramon Tort and Raimon Benach, to make a documentary casteller. We gave them absolute freedom on a creative level, and the result is surprising. Startling. The casteller world in its purest form. They have managed to capture the interior of the people who make castles.

 What the creators say, Ramon Tort and Raimon Benach

ANONYMOUS SOCIETY 
Three years of shooting have been. Three intense years in which we have set out to explain the castle event in the world. And doing it ended up feeling us part of this whole thing, that is a colla castellera. Beyond human constructions, which circulate virally through networks, castles involve a way of life and a specific social organization, which allows us to understand the society that welcomes them. The world, little by little, is discovering this fact, as a sympathetic, eccentric singularity, as a staged curiosity in the form of men, women and children who crowd up to erect constructions of certain heights, which sometimes fall, stand up to be erected again. But the truth is that, behind all this, a truly complex universe of human relationships is hidden, details and concretions that do this exercise much more unique, eccentric and curious than one could imagine. 

WHY THE XICOTS ?
The human towers group of the Xicots de Vilafranca is the example of a group where all the members are essential. From the rush to the last casteller of the pineapple, all the members need to be added to build up the buildings. Although its goals are a little more modest than those of the big groups, they are also a challenge that must be overcome and this is one of the important issues that we want to portray: despite the rivalry between groups, each colla castellera competes against herself. The gangs as people have their roof, their challenges, their limits and the success of each season, from each stage of their lives, depend in a certain way on themselves. The epic that involves the construction of a castle, without the need to be compared, is the essence of castles.

CATALONIA - PENEDÈS - VILAFRANCA VS. WORLD 
We do not think of a self-consumption documentary, we want to export the casteller, as a phenomenon that can portray the Catalans, the Spaniards, the Vilafranquins socially and culturally. This mixture of calculus and laughter is so singular, that it is part of our character. This integrating social operation, which will surely dismantle many stereotypes that give us the impression of being a fragmented society concerning roots, culture and ideology.
