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

Fantastic... about the heart that drives the culture
13 September 2005 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

Of course, there isn't a focus on all the freakish wonderment that is Burning Man...that's not the point of the film. It never really was... or could *ever* do it justice if it chose to sample the art/culture/awesomeness and insanity, as one would speculate at the event. That's not how it is done at Burning Man.

Its about the infrastructure, and the effort, and the rest of the very difficult things that go on behind the scenes. And though not exclusively fun...(as a fox newscast might cover the event) its definitely fun to watch...

I enjoyed it very much and I look forward to watching it again. Especially since i saw it before going... it will be interesting to see it again after going.
