Scene & Heard - Firecrackers

Date: Mar 15
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Where: Theatre
Cost: $10.01

The St. John's International Women's Film Festival presents a special screening of Firecrackers as part of their Scene and Heard Film Industry Conference.

Lou and her best friend Chantal plan to get out of their isolated, run-down town and move to a city far, far away. When Chantal's unstable and possessive ex violates her during a night of partying, the girls decide to exact their revenge on him through a night of vandalism and debauchery. The consequences of their actions are devastating, threatening the girls' chances of ever leaving. The more Lou fights tooth-and-nail to save her friendship and hold onto her dreams, the more she spins out of control as she begins to realize that freedom will come at a high cost.

Firecrackers is the debut feature film of director Jasmin Mozaffari, who will be joining us for a special Q&A following the screening.

Get a chance to see the much-buzzed-about film that has screened at some of the world's best Festivals and received numerous accolades since its premiere at TIFF 2018. Created with an almost entirely female key crew, Firecrackers portrays a powerful, female-driven narrative about friendship, independence, and resilience.
