Burning Man, the annual weeklong experiment in community, art, and radical self-expression, has grown famous for inspiring ordinary people to shed their 9-to-5 existence and act on their dreams. Spark: A Burning Man Story goes behind the scenes of the event, following Burning Man organizers and participants as they prepare and plan the yearly experience. The doc reveals the dedication and organization that go into making the “anything goes” occasion a success, and sheds light on the obstacles the organizers face moving forward.
