Los Angeles Premiere. American Cinematheque. March 6th 2011

March 6th 2011. 7:30pm
American Cinematheque, Los Angeles, CA
http://www.americancinemathequecalendar.com/content/dust-and-illusions-0

This is the LA première! Dust & Illusions has toured the country slowly since 2009, and has filled every single theater where it was shown. For the 1st time, a documentary about Burning Man looked at the history, a lot of it missing from the official twist. It is also the only film out of multiple dozens of them that actually brings a critical look at an event often described as very open-minded. Come and learn the true history, and look at how the largest counter-cultural event has now become a multi-million dollar business.

The DIRECTOR will be in attendance for Q&A. Tickets are available through the American Cinematheque’s website. I’m not sure that this will sell out again, but American Cinematheque forces you to use Fandango to buy tickets, and you are forced to pay a fee of $1.25 for each ticket. I highly recommend not to buy tickets ahead of time, and buy them at the box office.

SUBTITLES/CLOSED CAPTION available for hearing impaired people. If you need CC, please post a comment on the wall here or send me an email to request this. These are in subtitles format, not to the CC std, but our testers said they were happy with them!

Melbourne screening. Dec 15th 2010

Kino Dendy Cinemas, 45 Collins Street, Melbourne
Get Tickets Now. Presales $18, Regular/Door $20, (Seating limited)
Show is sold out. But there will probably be 5-10 tickets at the door tomorrow. Come a little early to get one.

Dust & Illusions is the only documentary film about Burning Man (BM) that tells you 30 years of history, going back into the underground movements of 1970s San Francisco that made it all possible. This is not a film that’s trying to re-create the BM experience, but rather a thoughtful, critical and balanced perspective on this event.

The film will show only once in Melbourne, and will not be available on DVD in order continue creating community gathering around the subject. We will do a video Q&A after the film with the director from San Francisco.

The Rainbow Serpent Festival has generously offered to give away 2 tickets to their 2011 session, to two lucky audience members. You just have to get a ticket to the screening of the film and be there on the day of the screening to be included in a lottery to win one of those 2 tickets. This is a very unique chance!

Last year’s screening was sold out a few days in advance, so we recommend to get tickets now. This is the 2nd time the Reno Nevada Museum of Art presents Dust & Illusions. It was a success last year with media talking about the film. Burning Man is coming into its 25 years since the 1st one on the beach in San Francisco. It has come a long way since then, and DUST & ILLUSIONS is an important look at the evolution from the underground of San Francisco to the large commercial event it has become in the desert of Nevada. It is a great opportunity to reflect on the meaning of the event and where we would all like to take it!

The screening is hosted by ADM, the organizers of the infamous Robodock festival. Robodock has hosted numerous artists from Burning Man in their past editions. Dust & Illusions is the acclaimed documentary film that dives into 30 years of history of Burning Man. This is really the only film that goes back into the underground movements of the late 1970s in San Francisco, and looks at the evolution of the now largest counter-cultural movement in North America. The film asks whether the festival has sold out its original identity to appeal better to its now mainstream audience.
