Storyline

"The Burning Sensation" will scorch your senses as it takes you into the heart of the Burning Man experience. In 2001 some 20,000+ souls made a pilgrimage to the Black Rock Desert to practice radical self-expression and self-reliance in a temporary, commerce-free community. At the end a 50-foot high, neon-lit, wooden effigy is burned, igniting a wild, tribal, all-night celebration. The world's largest venue for public art, Burning Man has elements of a Vegas acid trip, a nudist colony, a pyrotechnic convention, the Rose Bowl parade, a rave, the Museum of Modern Art, and a Mad Max movie dispersed over the 107 degree desert. The film captures intense footage of several art events as well as interviews with Burning Man organizers Larry Harvey (also co-founder), Crimson Rose and Will Roger who explain how, what started in 1986 as an impromptu Summer Solstice celebration, put on by a few friends at a beach in San Francisco, has turned into a full-blown exercise in city planning and ...

Burning Sensation captures the burning magic.
15 September 2000 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

Explaining burning man is close to impossible. Alex Nohe explains the unexplainable. Companionship, freedom, in its truest form, and open minds are only a few ways in which to describe what happens on the open playa. Nohe's definition in this film captures the true essence of what burning man is. Creative art displays, open expressionism, and FANTASTIC footage.

Naked people are a direct correlation between the mind, body and the self expressionism that is welcome on the playa. Displaying this on film shouldn't be criticized or condemned. It's all part of the BURNING SENSATION!!!!! The Burning Sensation has taught me what burning man is and what it stands for. Next to being there, it's as close as you'll get. Thanks Alex.......
