William G. Mancebo


Leading a group of eight young men is this forcado with a bloodied nose. Injured from a previous blow by the bull he is seen in action during a ceremonial pentecostal bullfight. This forcado is a frontman and member of the team that performs the pega de cara or pega de caras ('face catch'), the final event in a traditional Portuguese bullfight. Their job and passion is to catch the bull on the run and wrestle it into a standstill submission.
