The Fire & The Ash: A Short Documentary On Burning Man 2012

Check out this short documentary by Aaron Freeder as he travels through the recent 2012 Burning Man Festival, an 8-day event in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert where a city is built from scratch and torn down immediately after.

There is no vending or money exchanged and attendees have to prepare for the event by bringing all the supplies they will need including sound systems, food and shelter in order to survive the extreme desert temperatures. The camps at Burning Man are organized into a series of concentric circles that create a city grid. There are no cars and no reliable cell phone or internet service while on the rock.
