Firestorm

In the aftermath of the firestorm that devastated Canberra in January, 2003, three teenagers immersed in the Canberra punk rock scene explore the impact of the bushfire in light of their lives and loves. This evocative documentary film intertwines explorations of the devastated landscape, observations of the daily lives of the subjects, and intimate reflections and confessions made to the filmmaker.
