Firebird Festival Documentary Theatrical Premiere
A Story That’s Waited Eighteen Years To Be Told!
Firebird: Built to Burn is a documentary that delves into a year in the making of the beloved Firebird Festival, where a tight-knit community gathers every December to ignite a giant wooden phoenix. Fueled by their rustbelt spirit, a diverse group of volunteers persevere through pandemic restrictions, local government negotiations, and months of arduous building to orchestrate a cathartic come-back festival after their absence in 2020. Told through intimate interviews and fly-on-the-wall verité, Firebird: Built to Burn is a wholesome look into an unconventional tradition.
You can purchase tickets at The Colonial Theatre‘s website. A limited engagement will continue through December 14th.
