Film Taken From Streetcar in 1908 Barcelona

Here’s an absolutely fascinating film shot from the front of a streetcar in Barcelona, Spain.  Look at the way the people in the city of 1908 run along with the streetcar trying to see and be seen by the camera.  They seem to be full of joy and excitement.  They run along and ride bikes and wave.  Can you imagine people acting this openly today?  There’s something profound in this little film.  It just goes on along the tracks and through the crowds of happy onlookers without trying to make a point of any kind, but it makes a strong impression.  Wonderful film.  Watch it through to the end.  It will make you feel inexplicably happy.
