BURN is a character-driven documentary about Detroit, told through the eyes of Detroiters who are on the front lines, trying to rescue and rebuild it. BURN will follow the firefighters, the men and women charged with the thankless task of saving a city that many have written off as dead. We’ll also look at the educators, the reformers, the activists, the enthusiasts — those who have the vision and the heart to bring a forgotten American dream back to Detroit.
On a commercial project last fall, we had the pleasure of working with Brenna Sanchez, one of the producers of this film. She told us about her project documenting Detroit’s firefighters and we’ve been following the progress ever since. Check out their website for info, the filmmaking is truly breathtaking. To capture the in-the-moment drama of firefighters in action they are using a variety of small cameras from DSLR’s to helmet cams…
How cool, beautiful, frightening, dramatic was that? More than stunning visual imagery, this is an important film documenting the struggle of hard working men and women in the crumbling industrial mecca that is Detroit. The subtitle sums it, “one year on the front lines of the battle to save Detroit.”
