This Wednesday, Cinemapolis will be showing Passfire: A Film About Fireworks Culture Across the World. This film is a new documentary produced by Ithaca-based filmmakers Jesse and Jeremy Veverka with assistance from IC Honors Senior Hannah Basciano and fellow IC students James Manton and Patrick McMahon. Even the music was produced by local musicians, The New York Rock and Robby Aceto.
Passfire is a documentary about the world’s most amazing fireworks, the people who make them, and the cultures behind them. It travels to twenty-three countries on six continents to feel the explosions of the world’s greatest fireworks and celebrations.
The screening will be followed by a Q & A with filmmakers Jesse & Jeremy Veverka.
If you’re interested in seeing the documentary, tickets can be bought online or at the box office. More information about the showing can be found here.
