Apart from its passionate bullfights, fiery flamenco dancing, and enthusiasm for football, the country of Spain still has a lot more to offer.

At the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, the Spain Pavilion enthralls spectators with a unique multimedia display that captures the best of Spanish culture through the language of montage.

Visitors to the second exhibition hall of the Spain Pavilion will find themselves surrounded by giant screens showcasing the kaleidoscope of lives of the common people in Spain.

The video being displayed is a seven-minute short film produced by veteran Spanish director Basilio Martin Patino who spent a year-and-a-half creating and perfecting the piece. It introduces Spain's accomplishments over the last few decades against the backdrop of various scenes.

Maria Tena, comm. general of Spain Pavilion, said, "You'll find a lot of images of the Spanish, many of whom are everyday people. And the various scenes featured in the film are the most representative places in Spain, including the local streets and markets, which reflect the true color of the Spanish culture."

The typical moments captured in the short film include the hustle and bustle at a Spain train station, models sashaying down a runway showing off the beauty of Spanish designs, and loads of people carrying umbrellas and walking in the rain.
