Spark is an engaging behind-the-scenes documentary about the dreams and challenges of Burning Man and its unique culture of participatory art. 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. More information on the official website for Spark Pictures.
Join us after the film for a Q&A with Steve Brown, director of the film and founder of Spark Pictures. Steve will discuss the making of the film and how Spark Pictures hopes to use the film to ignite support for the arts.
Doors open at 6:15 p.m. for the 7 p.m. film.
