“This MASTERPIECE about an astounding and forgotten moment in recent American history SHOULD BE SEEN FAR AND WIDE.” – Filmmaker Magazine

“Has THE FORCE AND INTRIGUE of a courtroom thriller…Ripples with URGENCY and MORAL COMPLEXITY.”

In the astonishingly gripping Let the Fire Burn, director Jason Osder has crafted that rarest of cinematic objects: a found-footage film that unfurls with the tension of a great thriller. On May 13, 1985, by order of local Philadelphia 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. It was only later discovered that authorities decided to “…let the fire burn.” Using only archival news coverage and interviews, first-time filmmaker Osder has brought to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history.
