Ep 01 - PAVEMENT meets PLAYA at Burning Man

BM.CC_.E01.png

THE INTERSECTION looks at changing cities through physical intersections. This time we’re doing something different: The city is temporary and the intersections are conceptual. We’re going to a remote corner of Nevada for Burning Man. Producer David Boyer has been going to since 1996. He's heading back with a mission: to capture the event before it's over or loses all connection to its origins.

"Am I ready? I don't know. Eleven days — 12 days is a long time to be kind of in a different world. And that's the hope: What would be upsetting is if it didn't feel like a different world. I mean, that's why I've gone all these years." —David Boyer
