As The Dust Settles - A Participatory Documentary Shot at Burning Man
Synopsis: Every summer, deep in the Nevada desert, a temporary city is created by tens of thousands of people. The week-long celebration is known as Burning Man. Radical participation, gifting, self-reliance, and self-expression are a few of the core principles. Through a mosaic of personal perspectives from five filmmakers, this participatory documentary reveals an intimate glimpse of what they discovered about love, the environment, the gift economy, reality, art, creativity, and themselves. As The Dust Settles premiered at the Byron Bay International Film Festival 2013. This Dual-Layer DVD has the 85 minute Participatory Documentary, a 24 minute Making Of Video, several additional extras, as well as a special "jump to moment" menu. The DVD has full color double-sided artwork on the DVD case wrap featuring some great quotes on the inside, and high gloss full color artwork on the disc.

It starts out slow with different younger people taking about their Burningman experience. It didn't give a lot
of info about Burningman but mainly about the experience of these people. The best part of the DVD was the making
of section outside the movie itself. Maybe they should redo it and make a new movie about the making of the DVD?
You truly get what the week was like for these five filmmakers, immersed into what they were feeling, thinking, and doing. One of favorite moments is when they show the city from a plane. What a beautiful city!
