Castellers de Vilafranca in New York – June 2012

Gerard Garolera’s video “Statues of Liberty” presents images of some of the “castells” (human castles) constructed by the Castellers de Villafranca in New York in June 2012. The images are accompanied by the music of Pau Casals – native of the Penedès area and universal Catalan – and the speech that he gave at the United Nations Headquarters in New York in 1971, when he received the Peace Medal of that international body.
