Victor Jakovleski | United States, Mexico, Germany | 2017 | Unclassified 15+

The National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico is an observance unlike any other in the world. In celebration of San Juan de Dios, patron saint of firework makers, fiery festivities engulf the town for 10 days. Artisans show off their virtuosity, up-and-comers create their own rowdy, lo-fi combustibles and teams build larger-than-life papier-mâché bulls to parade into the town square – and blow up. Most of Tultepec’s residents work in fireworks, making the festival more than revelry for revelry’s sake. Plunging headlong into the fire, Viktor Jakovleski’s immersive, ecstatic film – highlighted by hypnotic and spectacular shots of the fireworks – honours the spirit of Tultepec’s community and celebrates celebration itself.

Victor Jakovleski is a guest of the festival and will take part in a Q&A after the screening.
