During the director scout in Barcelona in August, we got thrown into the midst of an incredibly beautiful event - La Merce festival - and specifically Correfoc, the fire run.


Just steps away from our hotel, the street was closed for traffic and opened to the devils, that run up and down holding bangers and hand held fireworks. Depending on predisposition of the particular devil, you happen to meet, you are very likely to be showered by their spiralling fireworks. Some truly have no mercy, so better come prepared with a hat, googles and long sleeves!
