01:05Copy video clip URL The fast-forward ends, and the image resumes as normal. As before, people continue to dance. The camera, in a long pan, captures close-up views of several men watching the scene. Some are talking and smiling, other observe silently. A few among the group acknowledge the camera with waves, others do not react.
