Oscilloscope acquires Viktor Jakovleski’s ‘Brimstone & Glory’

26 May 2017 11:04 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Documentary premiered at this year’s True/False Film Festival.

Oscilloscope has acquired North American rights to Viktor Jakovleski’s Brimstone & Glory and plan a theatrical release for later this year. 

Mongrel is selling international rights to the Court 13 and Department of Motion Pictures production funded by Cinereach.

The National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico is a celebration of San Juan de Dios, patron saint of firework makers that engulfs the town for ten days. 

Artisans show off their technical virtuosity, up-and-comers create their own displays, and dozens of teams build larger-than-life papier-mâché bulls to parade into the town square, adorned with fireworks that blow up in all directions. 

More than three quarters of Tultepec’s residents work in pyrotechnics, making the festival more than revelry for revelry’s sake. 

Jakovleski said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Oscilloscope as a partner. Their passion for cinema as a big screen experience is evident in their »

Cannes: Oscilloscope Buys Pyrotechnic Documentary ‘Brimstone and Glory’

26 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscilloscope has bought North American rights to Viktor Jakovleski’s documentary “Brimstone & Glory” for release later this year.

The film focuses on the National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico, a 10-day celebration of San Juan de Dios, patron saint of firework makers. Artisans show off their technical virtuosity and dozens of teams build larger-than-life papier-mâché bulls to parade into the town square, adorned with fireworks that blow up in all directions. More than three quarters of Tultepec’s residents work in pyrotechnics.

Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger said, “‘Brimstone & Glory’ is not just an epic feast for the eyes and the ears (though it is that), it’s a brilliant display of portraiture. It introduces us to people and a community — intimately, intensely, and beautifully – and sets the stage for a long career for Viktor. I have no doubt this is just the beginning.”

Producers are Dan Janvey, Elizabeth Lodge Stepp, »
