Storyline

In Texas, fireworks can be sold for about 10 days before the 4th of July and New Year's Eve. Most sales are from small roadside stands, many of which advertise "Buy 1 Get 5 Free" (or even 11). The stands are operated by a diverse group of people, who we meet. We also meet a distributor, visit a superstore, watch a semi-pro display, and even talk with a man who repairs the stands.

Cool Low-Fi Doc with a Downhome Feel
11 February 2003 | by (NYC, USA) – See all my reviews

I caught this on IFC and enjoyed it thoroughly. It's so cool to take a small slice of life that a lot of people don't even know about (living in NJ, I had no clue there were such things as Fireworks Stands) and interviewing the people that run them... from the little kids to the old couple to the young mullet-haired dudes. I like learning about these things and these people I never knew existed. Folks in TX take their fireworks seriously. There's even a Fireworks Superstore. Who knew? I love the low-fi feel and the actual people and dialogue of the time and the place. It's about Americana... and it's entertaining.
