Super 8 Footage of Burning Man’s First Year in the Desert (1990)

In September 1990, Bob G. captured this Super 8mm film footage of San Francisco Cacophony Society’s Zone Trip #4–“Bad Day at Black Rock“– the event more commonly known now as Burning Man. 1990 was the first year it was held out at Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.

With the release of the book Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society it’s been fun to revisit some of our previous posts about the early days of Burning Man, like these:
