See the most primitive, life endangering firework frenzies, spurred by ancient custom, religion and passion, which persevere around our planet even today. PASSFIRE: THE MOVIE contrasts societies which attack one another’s cathedrals with skyrockets to ones where second degree burns are a badge of honor, to our own spectacular pyrotechnic extravaganzas.
Our fascination with fire has manifested into fireworks around the globe. The Veverka Brothers’ passionate labor of love takes us on a kaleidoscopic voyage into these primordial rituals painted with explosions and flames.
After the film, meet two of America’s top fireworks artisans, who will answer questions, demonstrate firework crafting techniques, and have a fireworks show on the lawn!
Eden Bar will also be offering a special “Skyrocket” cocktail, featuring Blue Raspberry Vodka, Almond Syrup, Lemon, Blue Curaçao with Pop Rocks on the rim. Enzian Members who are Contributor Level and above will receive their first “Skyrocket” cocktail for FREE!
