Taking My Parents to Burning Man

Taking My Parents to Burning Man


This is a Spoon Studios, in association with I No. Films & Lucky Treehouse present... Taking My Parents to Burning Man, an award winning rockumentary.

Burning Man, the debauched arts festival, is not your average family vacation destination. But Bry, a reckless party animal, decides to rip his nearly retired parents from their all-American lives and throw them into the adventure of a lifetime. From director / star Bryant Boesen comes this raucous romp through the desert during one of America's oldest (and most controversial) parties. As Bry and his folks drink heavily from the Dionysian side of life, they will all learn a bit about themselves and more importantly, each other. Surprisingly touching and insightful, take a festive ride to Black Rock in this parental coming of age story.
