A macabre experiment across documentary and horror. Sulphur dives head first into the folk traditions and ceremonial weirdness of bonfire night in Lewes, Sussex. An annual event of ritual, some anti-catholicism, and lots of fire.
The shoot involved sending two crews and two actors into the furnace to explore the peccadilloes and darker dimensions of our odd, English folk traditions.
It’s the latest short film from director Christopher Ian Smith (citizensmith.net)
Sulphur features a soundtrack with the analogue electronics of Concretism. It was edited by audiovisual master Xavier Perkins (Exceeda xavierperkins.com/).
