“Spark: A Burning Man Story”, is a new documentary by first time director and producer Steve Brown and seasoned producer Jessie Deeter. Spark takes us behind the curtain with Burning Man organizers and participants, revealing a year of unprecedented challenges and growth. The film debuted on March 10th at this years SXSW film festival, and will for sure be in regular rotation in no time.
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.
