From filmmaker Jan Beddegenoodts comes a riveting and enlightening documentary short, Charlie Goes to Burning Man, which chronicles 81-year-old Charlie Warner – a media professor – as he experiences the mind-bending cultural event in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. Recently recovering from bone marrow cancer, major open-heart surgery and suffering from diabetes, Charlie proves that age isn’t a detriment, and that his wisdom and experiences throughout this life can be shared with a whole new generation. The slightly-NSFW film can be viewed above or in a larger format via the film’s website.
