World Premiere

In 1986, Burning Man is an annual event that brings together artists, architects and designers to create sculptures in the arid desert of Black Rock, Nevada. Each year, incredible ephemeral cities are built in the spirit of inclusion and self-expression. The 2018 edition marked the death of Larry Harvey, famed co-founder of Burning Man. Making its worldwide premier, this film gives a behind-the-scenes look inside a globally recognized event. Drawn in by the passion and inspiration of its artists, we discover the unique character of this larger-than-life festival.
