Spring Sacrifice

Ofrenda de Primavera

Netherlands, 1997


During the Santa Semana, preceding Easter, countless processions wend their way through the Spanish city of Malaga. The ‘Cofradía’ Brotherhood has the privilege of freeing one prisoner on Holy Wednesday. Ofrenda de Primavera is about the three men selected, one of whom will be the lucky one.
