The Fire Song – A Documentary Film by John Baumgartner

When an arsonist destroys First Lutheran Church — a vital lifeblood to the decaying, rust belt town of Lorain, Ohio — the members must find direction and stop their in-fighting or risk withering away like many of the surrounding downtown churches. Six years in the making and filled with colorful characters and honesty, THE FIRE SONG shares a feel-good slice of life in one midwestern congregation’s struggle to turn tragedy into triumph.

The film debuted at The Lorain Palace Theater on August 21st at 7 pm.

A special live cabaret performance by Lorain natives Jaclyn Bradley and Melissa Driscol kicked off the 2021 FireFish Festival, leading the audience through a musical celebration of show tunes and Lorain culture.  The performance was at 383 Broadway Ave, The Bank.
