FIRECRACKERS
2018, 93 min, Canada, Dir: Jasmin Mozaffari

In this remarkable debut from writer-director Jasmin Mozaffari, best friends Lou (Michaela Kurimsky) and Chantal (Karena Evans) dream of abandoning their dreary small town in search of greater opportunity in a big city far away. What stands in their way is Chantal's abusive ex-boyfriend, whose shocking actions incite the girls' need to rebel and exact revenge. But in this male-dominated environment, such revenge comes at a great price. Inspired by traumatic experiences in Mozaffari's youth, FIRECRACKERS is an authentic story of female empowerment, told through a refreshingly unique stylistic approach. "FIRECRACKERS is not nearly as casually joyful as its title suggests, but it is absolutely as incendiary." - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail.
