Art on Fire
An inspirational insight into the spectacular art at the center of the annual week-long event, this film follows the journeys of artists who defy reason to bring their massive installations to the punishing Nevada desert.
Filmed just after Burning Man’s much-loved founder Larry Harvey died suddenly, the artists and makers are challenged by high emotions, impossible timing and blinding dust storms. The richly cinematic, multi-character narrative unfolds over months as they imagine, build and ultimately burn the extraordinary main structures in this temporary city of dreams.
The premiere events will feature dynamic Q&A sessions with the film’s creators and some of the artists who brought their creations to life on playa.
