Young, struggling musicians Ray and Don are evicted from their South London squat.

However, when they fail to get the money needed, they steal a rare Black Metal record which seems to unleash dark forces that threaten their mission.
BURNING MEN is an atmospheric journey from cityscape to landscape, with outstanding cinematography and an evocative soundtrack. Taking in London, the East Coast, the Fens, Newcastle, the Northumbrian Moors and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the journey is a snapshot of contemporary England.
POV (Point of View)
In a unique and daring twist to cinematic storytelling BURNING MEN is shot almost entirely in POV, which means that the characters look straight at the audience. This is no mere gimmick – it creates an intimacy and immediacy which perfectly reflects the offbeat nature of the film.
