Beyond Belief: Honeymoon at Burning Man
Documentary by Graven Image Films, LLC Director, Writer, Editor, Producer Part First-Time-Burner's Guide, Newlywed Travelogue, Spectacle and Cautionary Tale... Princess Mati took her new husband and a camera crew to an annual bohemian art festival in the high desert of Nevada attended by thousands for a week...and never returned. It took the producers six years to turn what was basically a collection of home movies into a finished film complete with music and all. The initial plan had been to capture the enlightening experience of radical self-expression and share it with the world, but the footage showed a different tale. Was their love and sanity just no match for the desert, the revelers and the extremes that comprise Burning Man? She left a note, a disclaimer of sorts, which may be a clue as to what became of her: "Mark and I wrote the proposal for this film as a JOB. We are film makers, but for those of you who actually know me, know that I did not film any of the sacred moments that make Burning Man for real. I did not try to capture the energy of Burning Man, I had to keep my clueless camera crew away from my sacred friends so that I did not capture Burning Man. There are ethics, and you people see a very one sided forced perspective of us. It was intense." - Aurora Matahari Raiment http://www.HoneymoonAtBurningMan.com http://www.gravenimagefilms.com/
