Chicken John is at it again. This time he’s throwing a Burning Man “Forbidden” Film Festival. Why is it “Forbidden”? I’ll let Chicken explain that:

“For 25 years the current management of the event has spent tens of millions of dollars trying to somehow figure out how to make Burning Man about them. About their leadership abilities, about their management style or whatever they can come up with.

There have been quite a few films that show Burning Man in a light that is outside of what the current management of the event wants to portray. We have some of those films. We’d like to show them to you!”

Does this sound up your alley? I thought so! It’s gonna be outdoors at the Fort Mason drive-in and it’s all going down on March 23rd, from 7-10pm.

Selected scenes from featured movies include:

Eye of Rudra by Dean Mermell
– Burning Man the movie by Chuck Cirino
Dust and Illusions by Olivier Bonin
HELCO tower by Chuck Cirino
– Progress by Dean Mermell
– Art Bet Chickenjohn vs Jim Mason
– Commercials by Puzzling Evidence

Plus there will be some special treats and some classic footage as well.

Head out to see 2 hours of scenes from some of the best Burning Man films of all times! Edited together to baffle, confound and amaze!

Your ticket helps to support the SFIOP in 2021, and is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. We do not offer refunds within 30 days of the event.
