At Ibiza, everything or almost is an excuse to celebrate. They celebrate the opening of night-clubs at the start of the season and their closure, they celebrate on the beach, on boats and in villas, and every day they even celebrate the sunset. The local inhabitants also perpetuate traditional feasts in their villages. Over and above these festive rites, this documentary by Pierre Brouwers reveals an island rich in ancient history, encircled by creeks, cliffs and yellow sandy beaches emerging from limpid seas. Not forgetting, for people who still harbour a sense of peace and quiet, the little sister island of Formentera.
