Video clips: Venezuela
Commentary by C. Farrell
In this 30-second clip from an unknown country, a girl receives strokes from a man wielding a whip in a public place in a rural area. It does not seem to be a school or institutional setting. The fairly sparse crowd of onlookers includes people of all ages.
UPDATE: It now turns out to be Venezuela. Apparently it is a "rite of passage" ceremony from girlhood to womanhood, which takes place when the girl has her first menstruation.
The general atmosphere seems to be mildly light-hearted, with some laughter from the audience. The girl does not appear to be under any sort of duress. After receiving the strokes, she walks calmly back to her place in the crowd. One does not get the impression that anybody present thinks this a particularly extraordinary event.
