about

In 2012, Catalonia, an autonomous province of Spain, abolishes bullfighting, and Cat Tosko decides to make a documentary about it, "The Bull and The Ban". This is the book of the exclusive interviews, essays and photos with matadors such as Francisco Rivera Ordóñez (Death and the Sun) and Frank Evans (The Last British Bullfighter), Catalan politicians, animal rights activists and those who work in the bullfighting industry, including children as young as three years old. As well as an insight into what bullfighting is, these interviews explore the case for and against bullfighting and gives a history of Catalonia' s struggle for independence and rights. This is a moral journey of one British ex-pat into what it is to be human, and what it means to kill a bull, and the far-reaching effects of the Catalan ban on bullfighting worldwide. With a foreword by writer-bullfighter Alexander Fiske-Harrison, author of "Into The Arena - The World of the Spanish Bullfight".
