Another documentary about Detroit? By my count, that's six in two years, with a seventh currently in production.
BURN is a 2.35 widescreen documentary on firefighters in Detroit, "a city with vast stretches of forsaken buildings left as kindling, the highest arson rate in the country, and a budget crisis of epic proportions.
Meet the men and women at the most overworked and underequipped firehouse in the country, charged with saving a city many have written off as dead."
Co-director Tom Putnam: "No one has made a firefighting documentary before, let alone sent cameras into burning buildings. We [used] HD helmet cameras."
The Tribeca Film Festival will host its world premiere this weekend.
