On August 31, 2013 the Man will burn again as it has for the past 27 years.  Take a journey back in time with Bill Knowland and Carson Duper as they share with you this work in progress:

The Rise and Fall of Burning Man

The Rise and Fall of Burning ManUsing rarely screened 16mm film and concentrating on the “glory years” of the 90’s,
we follow Burning Man from its roots in the art underground through its evolution
into a worldwide cultural phenomenon.

 

Burning Man at Sunrise

Burning Man at SunriseMore than a “best of” compilation, this film will chart the whole history of the event,
its triumphs and its flaws, side-by-side and compressed into an illusion of one “ideal” trip.

 

Raising of the Man

Exploding Man

Exploding ManWe show how a handful of anarchist daredevils created a celebration of total freedom...

 

Jumping Through Flames

Jumping Through FlamesNo rules. No boundaries. “Survival is optional.” There is danger,
and an overwhelming sense of rising chaos just barely under control.

The Man and Crimson in 1991 "This is a microcosm of our society, a balancing act between personal freedom and
the rule of law - chaos versus order." Carson Duper
