[Background Information of the movie] This movie depicts the traditional Large hand-held Cylindrical Fireworks (Tezutsu Fireworks) of Japan’s Chubu Region. Tezutsu fireworks are made by packing gunpowder into a one-meter-long bamboo pipe that is then handheld by the participants. The scenes between 0:470:57 depict the ignition ceremony undertaken before igniting the large-scale fireworks. The igniter who holds the ignition stick climbs to the top of the large-scale fireworks to conduct a ritual that involves writing the Japanese character for water with the fiery stick. During this ritual, a guard covers the opening to the large-scale fireworks to ensure nothing is accidentally ignited.

* Approx. 1.6 times at 30p recording. #SonyAlpha
