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.
“Still, the importance of this film is not its ability to vindicate and heroize Americans. Rather, its highest quality is its unabashed truthfulness. As one of the many inter- viewees puts it, ‚The easier thing to do is try to move past it, instead of sitting with it.‘” – Slug Magazine
“Man on Fire tells a compelling and perennially relevant story” – Screen Anarchy
