    Match Head
    England
    Ten-year-old Meg has burnt down the foster care home that she lived in. As part of her punishment she is ordered to attend counseling sessions in the hope that these will cure her addiction to fire. When ex-arsonist George turns up to show Meg the dire consequences of his obsession, sparks start to fly and the counselor realizes maybe this wasn't such a good idea. A very dark comedy directed and produced by Ian Barnes. Principal cast: Eve Barnes (the filmmaker's daughter), Steven Elder and Zahra Browne.
