Glasgow Film Festival
Brimstone & Glory

Wed 28 February 2018

From the creators of Beasts of the Southern Wild comes this stunning documentary exploring the ritual, danger and absolute beauty of fireworks. The city of Tultepec is home to the National
Pyrotechnics Festival; a ten-day celebration that sees huge papier-mâché structures adorned with exploding fireworks parade the streets. With a 200-year history of fireworks production and an
estimated 30,000 Tultepec residents working in pyrotechnics, this is a community truly immersed in the industry. In the wake of the tragic 2016 fatal pyrotechnics market disaster, Brimstone & Glory is an expressive documentary about an enduring devotion to fireworks.
