The magical subculture of the Mexican Fire Dancer. 


An intimate look at the lives of modern Mexican Fire Dancers, many of whom dream of creating their own mini Cirque Du Soleil. The film follows the stories of several different performers and gives viewers an unprecedented look into their lives and art. A testament to the human spirit and the power of following your dreams while paying homage to the grace and power of artists who risk serious injury to pursue their Art. Filmed on location over a 6 year period this film gives important insight into a magical subculture that seeks to transcend the world’s perception of Fire Dancing.
