PBS-TV Tonight: Brimstone & Glory: National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec


Minimal dialog. In Spanish. Mostly visual. English subtitles. About 60 minutes. The pyrotechnics remind me a bit of the events at Burning Man.

The National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico, is a site of festivity unlike any other in the world.

I had no intent on watching this, but it pulls you in. Nice music. Fascinating just how much effort that goes into this dangerous Mexican event.

Why is the American media not reporting this? :?:
There is constant coverage of half that many people, still alive, in a cave in Thailand.

The sad part is that 22 out of the 24 were the emergency crew that came to help.
