    “An oasis of creativity blooms in Spark. Since we can’t all attend Burning Man, we can be thankful for Spark, which is probably the next best thing!” — The New York Times SPARK: A BURNING MAN STORY 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. Reviews: “An oasis of creativity blooms in SPARK. Since we can’t all attend Burning Man, we can be thankful for Spark, which is probably the next best thing!” — Andy Webster, The New York Times “Some of the most luscious Burning Man images I’ve ever seen. SPARK will have you aching to return!” — Gavin Borchert, Seattle Weekly “Compelling! Fascinating artistic imagery.” — Kerry Lengel, The Arizona Republic “I was completely inspired by the movie, with a deep longing to be as creative as the people who create art for Burning Man.” — Hilary Armstrong, The Huffington Post “The film is gorgeous: a virtual carnival of images that reflect the spectacle that is Burning Man.” — Marcia Franklin, Boise Weekly “Provides a fascinating look into the inner circle of the event’s organizers. A worthy exploration of a unique phenomenon.” — Marc Mohan, The Oregonian
