THE THUNDER FEAST

Every year, the San Juan de la Vega community in the lowlands of north-central Mexico witnesses an explosive tradition. Locals use explosive hammers, detonated by swinging them onto the ground, to recreate a centuries-old battle where the wealthy and the poor struggled over the same land. This film brings viewers into the excitement which has divided the generations of the community. Older residents resent the mayhem that accompanies the dangerous explosives, but a young group of rabble rousers insist that it’s all part of the tradition. The local authorities can’t seem to make up their mind.
