Brimstone & Glory


So giddily cinematic that the medium itself practically seems to roll over and wag tail in approval … a poetical, entrancing documentary.” –Variety

From the creative team behind BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, and inspired by BARAKA and KOYAANASQATSI, this visual feast documents the National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico, held in celebration of San Juan de Dios, patron saint of firework makers. It’s part folk art, part technical display and 100% pyromania. There is unrestrained delight, and more than a little terror, an explosive, glorious, unforgettable experience. Winner, Best Documentary, San Francisco Film Fest. (U.S.-Mexico, 2017, 67m, Oscilloscope Labs)
