Storyline

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

Interesting Perspective
19 October 2005 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

I had a chance to see Beyond Black Rock at a screening a few weeks ago and I was inspired by its honesty.

Burning Man is a complicated and dense topic to try to compress into 2 hours of film. The makers of this film clearly had a passion for the topic when they were producing this movie. The people in front of the camera are interesting and openly share their Burning Man experiences.

For those who have attended Burning Man. This movie brings back warm memories and shows a side of BM that many of us never see.

If you have not ever had the fortune of attending a Burning Man festival this is a wonderful snapshot of the experience.
