Storyline

Each year, 60,000 people from around the globe gather in a dusty windswept Nevada desert to build a temporary city, collaborating on large-scale art and partying for a week before burning a giant effigy in a ritual frenzy. Rooted in principles of self-expression, self-reliance and community effort, Burning Man has grown famous for stirring ordinary people to shed their nine-to-five existence and act on their dreams. Spark takes us behind the curtain with Burning Man organizers and participants, revealing a year of unprecedented challenges and growth. When ideals of a new world based on freedom and inclusion collide with realities of the "default world," we wonder which dreams can survive. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Larry Harvey: Community is a pain in the ass, because you have to deal with all kinds of drama, y'know. And as you get older, you're kind of less patient with drama. But really, the reason for me to keep doing this, is a very sound one; I know myself. And if I detest and quit this thing... it would kill me. My life would not have meaning. I wouldn't be forced out of myself. I wouldn't be in contact with people. I would... I'd be just this wretch. I'd be this lonely guy. This is the best thing that ever ...

Burners will love this documentary.
9 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Burning Man means myriad things to multitudes of people. I would say that the ones who have the most difficulty defining the experience to a "virgin", are probably the most accurate. In my encounters, people who are the most opinionated, are the ones who have never participated.

There are wonderful aerial shots and time lapse sequences accompanied by a brilliant soundtrack. And even though the film is long, I would have liked some coverage of the theme camps.

The filmmakers have achieved what others have long been striving to convey- a comprehensive overview of the essence of Burning Man. A veteran and a "newbie" team up to give us unprecedented access to the movers and shakers of the organization...filling in the rich history of an event that will surely change your life forever.
