Riddle of Fire

While attempting to remove parental control settings from their game console and perfecting a blueberry pie recipe, three kids set out on an errand for their mother, leading them on a journey through the heart of America. Along the way, they encounter eccentric characters in a tale reminiscent of Charles Dickens, Hayao Miyazaki, and The Little Rascals.

 

Weston Razooli brings this modern fairy tale to life, presented during the Directors’ Fortnight and praised by none other than Quentin Tarantino himself. Filmed in nostalgic 16 mm, the movie earned a Special Mention at the Sitges Film Festival.
