The National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico is a site of festivity unlike any other in the world. In celebration of San Juan de Dios, patron saint of firework makers, conflagrant revelry engulfs the town for ten days. Artisans show off their technical virtuosity, up-and-comers create their own rowdy, lo-fi combustibles, and dozens of teams build larger-than- life papier-mâché bulls to parade into the town square, adorned with fireworks that blow up in all directions. BRIMSTONE & GLORY honors the spirit of Tultepec's community and celebrates celebration itself. Edited by Affonso Gonçalves and scored by Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin, the creative team of BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD..
