Finally a Vancouver screening of the documentary well received at screenings in Austin, LA, New York City, San Diego, San Francisco, El Paso, Seattle, Saratoga Springs, Ojai, Portland & Tucson. A great film for those curious about the event, newbies, and veteran burners. Q and A afterward with the director in from Los Angeles.
ABOUT THE FILM:
See 11 Years of playa art, mutant vehicles, theme camps, temples, explosions and flames. No other documentary covers it all like this.
For one week every year, 50,000 people gather in the Black Rock desert to build a temporary city of art. Founded as an experiment in radical self-expression, Burning Man is like no other place on earth. The ground rules are simple: no commerce, leave no trace, no spectators – participants only. You bring what you need to survive, and your gift of participation and art.
Black Rock City, as it is called, has everything you would expect in a real city: a post office, airport, radio stations, newspapers, a café, recycling, police, fire and medical.
JOURNEY TO THE FLAMES was directed by Doug Jacobson, who follows a group of friends as they head off to the desert festival. Experience 11 years of amazing Burning Man art. Take a ride into the madness and discover a world of art, sexuality, music and fire… lots of fire.
