BURNING MAN: BEYOND BLACK ROCK goes behind the scenes of a social revolution to explore the philosophy that fuels it, the social contract that drives it, and the transcendent experience that makes it a worldwide cultural force. Granted unprecedented access to the inner workings of the Burning Man organization, the filmmakers spent 18 months with the founders, organizers, artists and participants to document the full complexity and diversity of the Burning Man community. But, true to its title, the film goes beyond the city they raise in the desert - revealing the Burning Man's plans to bring its unique culture to the rest of the world. BEYOND BLACK ROCK tells, for the first time ever, the real story of Burning Man - from the inside out. Written by William Haskins

Hands down the best film I've seen about Burning Man
19 July 2013 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I am a long time attendee of Burning Man, and I've seen my fair share of films about it, because I find the subject matter so fascinating and so hard to capture. Let me just say that while no film can truly capture what it's like to be there, this film does far and away a better job of relating what the event and related subculture are truly about than any of the other pieces I've seen.

Damon Brown is listed as the director and the editor, which I would normally think is suicide for a feature of any kind, but he really did a bang up job of keeping the story moving along. A 105 minute documentary isn't exactly inviting to a lot of people, but this one flew by and left me wanting for more.

The depiction of the Burning Man organization was pretty great, if maybe a little too friendly at times. I have a lot of friends who would take these guys to task given the opportunity, but I think it was wise of the filmmakers to not focus on the inside baseball drama in the community, since your average watcher (or attendee) simply wouldn't notice or care.

I wish it were in HD... that's my only complaint. Kudos!
