Sam Polley & The Old Tomorrows warm up the stage with their take on ‘50s and ‘60s rockabilly licks, old country twang and Motown swing. Then, Jasmin Mozaffari’s debut feature Firecrackers is up -- a powerful portrayal of two best friends’ who are desperate to leave
their rural Ontario town. Their plan is derailed when a night of debauchery turns darker than they expected when a possessive ex-boyfriend assaults one of them, threatening both their friendship and their freedom. The films raw storytelling, searing energy
and vibrant cinematography earned it critical raves as well as two
Canadian Screen Awards for Directing and Editing.
Cinema Axis says “an intense and powerful work from beginning to end, Firecrackers is a must-see.”
