Overview

An inspirational insight into the spectacular art at the center of this annual celebration, "Burning Man: Art on Fire" follows the unpredictable journey of the artists who defy reason to bring their massive installations and sculptures to the punishing Nevada desert. Filmed just after Burning Man's founder's sudden death, the community of artists are challenged by impossible timing and blinding dust storms. This 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. A poignant and uplifting feel-good movie.
