David Knight - 8th June 2012

Filmed on location in New York between May 12 and 14th 2012, the video for Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros' Man On Fire is a documentary of dance and movement taking place at community venues around the city, from elite cheerleaders to double dutch skippers, their coaches and their moms - and, finally, on a derelict lot, dancers of the New York City Ballet.

This compelling and uplifting piece - a tribute to the diverse vitality of New York - was directed by Brady Corbet, who's really better known as an actor (Mysterious Skin, Funny Games US, Melancholia, Martha Marcy May Marlene), and produced by Borderline Films, the outfit behind the aforementioned Sundance smash Martha Marcy May Marlene.
