Mexican Boom Town

Life in Tultepec revolves around pyrotechnics. Producing handmade fireworks is a passion, an art form, and a source of livelihood for most residents of this Mexican town. But it’s also an extremely dangerous and unpredictable occupation, as those orphaned or widowed by fiery accidents will attest. Meet those willing to risk their lives for their explosive craft as RTD visits Tultepec’s annual pyrotechnics festival.
