Synopsis

A documentary fiction work. Weaving together the lives of two men, this film draws upon their individual dealings with fire to expand across themes such as pyromania, anarchy, radicalism and enlightenment.
A film that gives voice to the anxiety and rage unleashed by Brexit Britain. With fire as the film’s central metaphor, artist Callum Hill welds together stories real and fictional, personal and political, to dwell on the contradictory impulse to destroy in the hope of progress. (Rotterdam brochure)
