The Burn

Søren Martinsen, Denmark, 1999


Every year thousands of people gather to create a community based on their own ideas and rituals. They create a city which frames their radical self-ecpression over a week. The festival is non-commercial and every one must bring whatever it takes to survive in the desert for a week. The festival conclused in an explosion when The Man - an enormous effigy of a man - is burned by the participants in an orgy of fire.
