Event Horizon, A Documentary on Burning Man

"Event Horizon" is a documentary look at Burning Man's impact upon the Reno area. Burning Man organizers, local leaders and personalities, and extensive footage of local arts, events, and activities tell the story of what it means when, once a year, over 50,000 people descend into the region from all corners of the globe to build "Black Rock City." The film explores Burning Man's history, some of the myths and misunderstandings that surround and sensationalize Burning Man's culture, and how the event has come to survive, grow, and evolve by working closely with its neighbors. The film focuses on the challenges and benefits brought to Reno and its sibling communities which serve as the final outposts of civilization to these migrations, and on how Burning Man principles are permanently transforming the local arts and culture. As an experiment in radical expression, radical inclusion, and civic, immediate, and participatory community, Black Rock City has many lessons for individuals and other communities, and Event Horizon is both a study and celebration of Burning Man's reverberations out into the wider world. 

Event Horizon debuted at the Nevada Museum of Art on June 14, 2012, and has been featured on the Reno's PBS station, KNPB. >  Watch Film
