Now that many in our society have moved beyond traditional religion, how do we move past tragedy? How do we mark the exciting events in our lives and how do we deal with life’s inevitable trials? Some people who face these questions find the answer in the most unlikely of places, Burning Man. “The Temple” explores modern spirituality in a contemplative and personal manner touching on the ideas of self-discovery, letting go, and meaningful human connection that transcends simply a party in the desert.
A very special thank you to the Burning Man organization for permission to make this film. Also a thank you to Jonathan Harris for lending such eloquent words to the piece and Amiee for sharing her story. Find out more on Twitter: Already Alive.
At Burning Man GlamCocks are one of several notorious queer theme camps that are clustered in “the gayborhood” alongside Comfort & Joy Village. In 2012 they filmed this heart-warming documentary which shows the group setting up camp, building their structures and exploring the art (not to mention each other). From wild parties to life-affirming experiences, “Meet The GlamCocks” gives you an insiders view into a week at one of the world’s most epic festivals.
For a group with such a uniform physical aesthetic (all Glamcocks are generally handsome with an athletic physique) they are represented by diverse personality types; each member interviewed has a specific and personal take on what they get out of being a part of this joyous, flamboyant organization and the internal impact of the greater Burning Man experience.
FUN FACT: One of the most colorful Glamcocks, the drag chanteuse Courtney Act, will be competing on Season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race (coming soon in February 2014). In the meanwhile, see Courtney get dusted in “Meet The Glamcocks.”
