Anybody seen this collection of "poetry set against the backdrop of images in exotic locales, including Spain, Vietnam, and the Burningman Festival in Nevada?"
The BurningMan section was particularly noteworthy of attention, as the film seems to suggest some rather disturbing ideas. It begins by showing the festival, with hundreds of firespinners lighting up the night. It then moves on to a montage of semi-naked women & men dancing in mobile plexiglass cages, illuminated vehicles criss crossing the desert, and the regular assortment of chaos one would expect at BM. The poem begins with the narrator saying, to effect, that: There are some people in the world, with whom the magic of childhood is so powerful, that it never leaves them.
It goes on describing the joys of this child-like adulthood, but then takes a rather sharp turn. There is an image of some guy dressed up in a big blue monster costume fondling countless half-naked women. The montage then shifts to show an assortment of fondling acts. The narrator then states: Woe unto them, when tragedy happens, and reality awakens them from their dream. The films seems to suggest that the BM festival has become a playground for the perverted. That, in essence, there are wolves in sheep's clothing hiding in the flock.
Anybody seen the film? Been to the festival? Thoughts?
