“Man on Fire tells a compelling and perennially relevant story” – Screen Anarchy
Man on Fire
Grand Saline, Texas, a town east of Dallas, has a history of racism, a history the community doesn’t talk about. This shroud of secrecy ended when one man self-immolated to protest their racism in 2014, shining a spotlight on the town’s dark past. Man on Fire untangles the pieces of this protest and questions the racism in Grand Saline today.
Following the showing, there will be a post-show discussion.
