SAN MIGUEL ALLENDE
SCENE
The sound of the conversation slowly disappears to be replaced by the sound of a drum and then a whistle is heard,
playing a melody that weaves around the beating of the drum in an interesting counterpoint. Then we see the author of these sounds, a small figure of a man whose face reveals the crags of hard work, wisdom and the unmistakable signs of his racial background, a Mexican Indian. He is first seen standing in the dark, under the trees, beating a small drum hanging from his neck by a leather thong. With his other hand he is playing a small flute carved from bamboo.
The scene changes and we see him slowly walking in the cobblestone streets of a village, small houses made of adobe, a tiny stream bisecting the road. The light of the early sun is seen devouring the morning mist and a church appears surrounded by low red brick walls enclosing a courtyard where a small group of people are congregated, all of them busily working, sweeping and decorating the courtyard with coloured paper glued to bits of string. The camera then pans out to an aerial shot showing the whole town of San Miguel, beautiful in the morning light.
