Leaping head first into the flames, //Thirteen & Co writer and director Patrick Fileti’s INFERNO delves into the heartland of Tulepec, Mexico to tell the true story of a town famous for its pyrotechnics and the unique sub culture that surrounds it.

A portrayal of the lives of artisans and their families in the lead up to the festival of San Juan de Dios, INFERNO honours the spirit, tradition and passion of Tultepec’s community in celebrating life, to the point of embracing death. Beginning the festival, a party sets the town aflame; roughly 300 giant wooden bulls loaded with fireworks are built for a single day of incendiary celebration. It is a ritual and a pageant that celebrates explosives for their life-giving energy in a town that lives and dies according to the laws of gunpowder and fate.
