Inferno |

We delve into the heart and soul of Tultepec, Mexico - a town famous for its pyrotechnics industry. An explosive portrait of the lives of artisans and their families in the lead up to the festival of San Juan de Dios, when blazing revelry engulfs the town. Over 300 giant wooden bulls loaded with fireworks are set alight in the town square as an offering; it's a celebration of explosives for their life giving energy to a town that lives and dies molten in fire. Plunging head into the flames, Inferno honours the spirit and passion of Tultepec’s community in celebrating life and death.
