D: Richard Dewey, Timothy Marrinan | USA/UK/Belgium | 88 min | English | SOUTHEAST REGION PREMIERE

In the 1970s, performance artist Chris Burden had himself shot, locked up, electrocuted, cut, and crucified. As the 70s progressed, Burden became disillusioned with the expectations and misconceptions based on his art and as the pressure grew, the line between his life and his art blurred. After walking away from his art in the late 70s, Chris Burden was faced with reinventing  himself artistically. Burden follows the creation of new works in the artist’s studio and with access to his personal archive of images, video and audio recordings, stands as the first feature documentary to fully explore the life and work of this seminal artist who often risked his life in the name of art.
