DUST & ILLUSIONS. http://dustandillusions.com
I'm a Burning Man regional representative for Portland. There are many people from Portland that go to the festival every year. And on october 14th, there will be a special screening of a documentary that explores 30 years of the Burning Man history. The director will be in attendance for Q&A.
I think this is an opportunity to interview him. I saw the film in Seattle last winter, and was really impressed by the depth of research that was made for the film. It also brings a criticism that most participants at Burning Man are incapable of making, and that criticism shows the obvious human side of the history being told... from a small community event, to a large multi-million dollar business the event has become. The film goes well beyond the event, and the audience can draw many parallels with our societies around the world. It questions our ability to lead without ego/power interest, etc...
Very interesting subject, that again goes well beyond Burning Man, and is a look at our society as it is today.
