Would YOU take your 60 year-old parents to Burning Man?
Well, one man did, and made a documentary film about the whole experience.
We caught up with Taking My Parents To Burning Man‘s Bryant Boesen, and his cast-mate, co-director, co-editor, co-producer Joel, this morning as they arrived on Maui and began to prepare for tonight’s 10pm screening at Celestial Cinema.
On Opening Night of the Maui Film Festival, three beautiful venues will fill with moviegoers: the Celestial Cinema at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf course, the Seaside Cinema at the Grand Wailea, and the Castle Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC).
Opening the festival at the MACC we have Dying to Know: Ram Dass & Timothy Leary, a “cosmic buddy film” featuring the two revolutionaries. Bonus points: the film is narrated by Robert Redford.
Gay Dillingham, Director, “Dying to Know”
We caught up with director Gay Dillingham who is here on Maui to present her film with a Q & A to follow. She reminds us that the screening is a benefit for the Love Serve Remember foundation set up in Ram Dass’ name, and that the world-renowned spiritual teacher himself will be in attendance (likely the only time he’ll attend the screening of this film.
