‘BURN: One Year on the Front Lines to Save Detroit’ Showing at Marcus Duluth 10 Theater Tonight
Two special screenings will take place tonight in Duluth. BURN, an inside look at firefighting in Detroit, will be shown in Duluth for one night only on Tuesday, May 7 at the Marcus Duluth 10 Theater in Canal Park. Show times are 6:00 p.m. and 8:10 p.m.
BURN is an action-packed documentary about Detroit, as told through the experiences of Detroit firefighters. But the film is also a testament for all first responders and municipalities who are facing declining budgets and urban decay.
To purchase tickets and view a trailer of the movie, visit www.detroitfirefilm.org. Tickets are $15 dollars/each if purchased on-line or $20/each at the door. The 90-minute film contains adult language, themes, and brief nudity and is not recommended for children under age 13.
BURN has been well-received by critics and audiences alike, recently winning the Audience Award at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. Reel Film News calls BURN, “Jaw-dropping. Needs to be seen to be believed.”
BURN was created by independent film makers Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez. After presenting their idea of a firefighter documentary and being turned down by several studios, they relied instead on grass-root donations through a kickstarter.com campaign, fan support, and word-of-mouth—eventually securing the backing of executive producers Denis Leary and Jim Serpico of the FX series Rescue Me.
