Tackling Misogyny in Firecrackers


“I’ve always been interested in the idea of women’s freedom, or lack of freedom and Firecrackers really looks at that in a very specific way and its all about power.” —Jasmin Mozaffari

Jasmin Mozaffari's feature debut marks the bold arrival of a vital new voice. In the same vernacular as social-realist auteurs Andrea Arnold and Lynne Ramsay, Mozaffari's searing drama brims with explosive intensity.

Driven by audacious lead performances from Michaela Kurimsky and Karena Evans and made by an almost entirely female key crew, the skilfully tenacious Firecrackers is a remarkable testament to what female-driven narratives can be.
