These Death-Defying Human Towers Build on Catalan Tradition | Short Film Showcase

2697 ratings | 127564 views
Catalonia is ruled by the Spanish government, but its people have been constructing independent kingdoms for centuries. By climbing up backs and balancing on shoulders, Catalonians of all ages stack their bodies on-top each other to build castells, or human towers. The structures are not typical fortresses—notably, they are made of flesh and bone rather than sandstone or granite—but their strong foundations serve as a unifying force for many Catalonians. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe ➡ Get More Short Film Showcase: http://bit.ly/ShortFilmShowcase #NationalGeographic #ShortFilmShowcase #HumanTowers About Short Film Showcase: The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors.

The practice was first documented in 1801 as a cultural activity and became a competition in the 1980s. To learn more, you can read on here: https://on.natgeo.com/31juv83

Nice short film. It is unfortunate that it becomes politicized with the first two sentences that do not follow the theme of the video.

Hi Nat, I read the link of your comment, and the first sentece say: "Catalonia is known for its sea-side markets (la boqueria), gothic architecture -- championed by Antoni Gaudí -" Gaudi is a modernist architect, not gothic.

It's a shame that in this documentary you talk about the persecution of our language and you make to speak Spanish to all the Catalan people that appears in this video. Just sad.

To all people saying "sO sTuPiD aNd DaNgErOus oMg" you clearly have no idea about castells. As a casteller I cant tell you that is a perfectly safe tradition and all the people that you see under the castell helping is there for safety if it collapses. There are always castells that collapse Ive been in a bunch of them AND NO ONE EVER HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED. Stop criticising if you dont know how it works...

Good film Nat Geo, but you put too much focus on the bad side (falls and the danger), you made it too dramatic. It is NOT that dangerous, nor exactly "death-defying".

National Geographic!? The Castells are in fact very beautiful and powerful, but.. - Catalonia is NOT "ruled by the Spanish government", but by themselves, they are Spaniards as well. Also, it has one of the most (if not the most) degree of independency of any other region in Europe (besides perhaps the Basque Country). - Also Catalonia has never been an independent kingdom. Ever. Not for centuries, not for a decade. Not even for a single year. - Finally, this is NEITHER a deep rooted tradition, NOR uniquely Catalan. The Castells evolved from the Valencian Muixerangas, and only gained its actual hype as an identitarian symbol from the 80s on..

@Sehr Sowielike every democratic country around the world?

@Full Engine I mean that they too chose and vote who to be ruled by, ergo they rule themselves. Portrayed like in the documentary it seems like they are ruled by a foreign power. Imagine saying something like "Californians are ruled by the US Government". Same here.

It's a beautiful tradition, I wished it was not a competition like in these recent years, everything is competing and that takes away the spirit, the meaning of union and love for the country that once had. Catalans have sardanes and castells both consist on holding each other in union with the music played at the same time. Amazing people.

Qué maravilla de tradición catalana. Es loable que las antiguas plazas de toros sean ahora usadas para els Castellers. Catalunya de verdad es otra cosa.
Paloma Alvarez (3 months ago)
@Raoul Morales-Márquez Cataluña es parte no sólo del estado español, sino de España. Catalyña, Murcia, Valencia, Navarra, Extremadura, Castilla, León y todas las demás regiones, han construido España. El primer lugar documentado, q empezó a celebrar corridas de toros fue precisamente en Cataluña. Hay otros lugares en España en donde tampoco se permiten. Quizá porque tampoco tienen ganaderías de toros bravos.

@Vidz Song Catalonia is not a city. Barcelona is a city, capital of Catalonia
Guillem Genoves (6 months ago)
@Vidz Song As you can imagine, I'm catalan, so I know perfectly what's the situation here. Of course in legally terms Catolina nowadays it's inside Spain, but in cultural terms, Catalonia is another nation in the same way that Scotland is another nation despite it is part of the Great Britain. Human towers are part of the catalan tradition (and not spanish's) and bullfighting is part of the spanish traditions (bullfightings are forbidden in catalonia, and we're proud of that).

I’ve never seen a bunch of kids hauled away from a soccer field with neck braces. I’d love to see a link to your statistics. I’m sure some kids get hurt worse but saying any kid who play from a young age seems just silly. I played soccer through varsity and never had a need for a neck brace or any other serious injury, some grass burns. I know a guy that broke his leg pretty badly but he was the exception not the rule.
Benicadell Benicadell (6 months ago)
Valencia is not Catalonia. The Valencian language is not the same as the Catalan language. The Catalan tradition of the Castells or Dance of the Valencians is not as old as it seems and these also have their origins this time, in the ancient Valencian Muixaranga that can still be seen and enjoyed in Algemesí (Valencia). Catalan nationalism has been appropriating the culture and language of its Valencian and Mallorcan neighbors for years and, among other things, with the Castells, the language, etc., what they want is to culturally structure their fictional and false Catalan countries. In Valencia we want to speak Spanish but also Valencian and not the standard Catalan that Catalan and Spanish nationalism wants to impose on us.

" When you are close to castell it's like being next to a beating heart. " Wow , it sounds so poetic . " that goes boom boom boom " 😂 Jokes apart , it was really a beautiful experience to watch this ,it indeed felt like watching a living poetry, kudos to their bravery especially those little kids. It taught me about a beautiful culture , their unity and courage . I'm happy it is declared as a cultural heritage by UNESCO . We Indians also make human towers in schools and playgrounds to celebrate the birth of lord Krishna . I think this is part of some cultures around the world to celebrate things they believe in , it makes me happy and feel connected to them .

Thank you for this documentary National Geographic. You forgot to mention the gralla and the Toc de castells. This is coming from a Catalan and an American who was born and lives in Tarragona. This year I start university and they have a colla. I will take part in it as a gralla player. FYI the place where the competition was held was an old bullring which is now used for castells every two years and for concerts. Some “traditions” just don’t fit in the 21st century. The castells remind me of JFK when he said “ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country”. Visca Catalunya lliure!

Whether in Catalunya or abroad, castellers are not professional athletes or acrobats but are regular people from the neighbourhood. People of all different body types, genders, ages, and origins are needed and welcome in castells.

Albert Gaspà agreed, I'm a member of a colla exterior and I wish that documentaries would quit showing long montages of castells falling just for the shock value, or would at least balance it by talking about statistics and safety features; it misrepresents how often castells fall and makes it look more dangerous than it is.
Albert Gaspà (6 months ago)
actually is not THAT dangerous, I'm in that, i can tell you there is not the danger level that it may look for people who doesn't know how it works. there are a lot of "colles" that make " castells" all around the world, if there is one near you, i invite you to try it.
