Notes/Trivia:
  • Made when he was 17 years old, Fireworks is the earliest of Kenneth Anger's films to still survive. The original negative and Anger's subsequent hand-tinted prints were lost. The current extant version is constructed from early 16mm prints and was painstakingly restored by UCLA.
  • Following the film's release, Anger was arrested on obscenity charges. The case ultimately went to the California Supreme Court, which ultimately threw the case out, declaring the film to be a work of art.
