A new documentary entitled “Dust And Illusions” by Olivier Bonin, features an in-depth look a the history of Burning Man. After four years of research, filming and in-depth interviews with people involved in the Burning Man community, this film explores how the anarchic festival is coming to terms with it’s own popularization.

What started out as a small gathering on the beach of San Francisco has evolved into a fully functioning city in the Nevada Desert. And with nearly 50,000 attendees last year, many participants are concerned that the event’s mainstream appeal will jeopardize the festival’s utopia vision.

While the documentary is still in the post-production phase, it is set to be released in early 2009. However, there will be a special preview screening at CELLspace in San Francisco this Saturday, June 28th.
