We have arranged for the movie SPARK: A Burning Man Story to come to Milwaukee on October 16th!
It will be at the Marcus Southgate Cinema, 3330 S. 30th Street, Milwaukee, 53215, on Thursday October 16th at 8:30 pm.
I have seen it, it is a truly amazing movie that will inspire you and whomever you bring…
As they put it:
“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…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.”
As I’m sure you know, people from Wisconsin have been involved with Burning Man since the 1990’s, long before it became a worldwide cultural phenomenon. We and have helped build and shape parts of the event, as well as bringing many of its ideas and principles back to Wisconsin in our events and collaborative projects.
This movie is the place to bring your co-workers and your family–you know, all the people you endlessly try to explain it to, but they don’t really “get it”…. 🙂 This movie is about the closest I have seen to something that will really make you get it.
After the showing we will have a public Q & A session, if you feel brave and want to join us up on stage, let us know!
