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.
