Congratulations to Honors senior Hannah Basciano for her work in helping to produce Passfire: A Film About Fireworks Culture Across the World!
As the Assistant Producer for the film Hannah has worked with Ithaca-based filmmakers Jesse and Jeremy Veverka and fellow IC students James Manton and Patrick McMahon to bring together a story about the world’s most amazing fireworks, the people who make them, and the cultures behind them. The film “travels to twenty-three countries on six continents to feel the explosions of the world’s greatest fireworks and celebrations.”
Hannah has been working on this documentary for quite a while now. In the summer of 2015, we posted a Summer Student Spotlight about Hannah and her work on the film. At that time she was an intern for the Veverka brothers’, travelling to screenings of the rough cut in Wyoming.
If you’re interested in seeing the documentary, Cinemapolis will be showing it on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. More information about the showing can be found here.
