Director Jason Osder has crafted the rarest of cinematic objects: a found-footage film that unfurls with the tension of a great thriller. On 13 May 1985, a longtime feud between the city of Philadelphia and controversial Black Power group MOVE came to a deadly climax. By order of local authorities, police dropped military-grade explosives onto a MOVE-occupied rowhouse. TV cameras captured the conflagration that quickly escalated and resulted in the tragic deaths of eleven people (including five children) and the destruction of 61 homes. Using only archival news coverage and interviews, this first-time filmmaker has brought to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history.

One lucky winner will be enlightened LET THE FIRE BURN, courtesy of Zeitgeist Films.
