Man on Fire

Sponsored by Simple DCP

Grand Saline, Texas, a town east of Dallas, has a history of racism, a history the community doesn’t acknowledge or talk about. This shroud of secrecy ends when, in 2014, Charles Moore, an elderly white preacher, self-immolates in order to shine a spotlight on the town’s dark past. Man on Fire grapples with the pieces of this extreme act of protest and, in the process, explores the wider issue of continuing racism in our society. Written and directed by two-time SLO Film Fest alum Joel Fendelman (David, Remittance). 54 min. USA. Watch the trailer here
