"Dust & Illusions: A history of Burning Man" at the Garland 4/22

If you've ever dreamed of taking part in the Burning Man festival in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, here's your chance! Well, almost.

Documentary filmmaker Oliver Bonin has tackled the task of putting together a history of this phenomenal event, which started with a few people on a San Franciso beach in 1986 and has grown to 40,000 people or more meeting yearly in the desert to create what many refer to as a city.

The film explores Burning Man through those who organize and those who participate, examining what the festival has become--has what started as a celebration of collaborative living become simply a drug and party destination?

Whatever Burning Man is today, it still boasts some incredible and breathtaking artwork. Check out the Website for "Dust & Illusions."
