Let the Fire Burn
Eleven were killed and sixty one buildings burned in one of the most tumultuous clashes between government and citizens. 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, a longtime feud between the city of Philadelphia and controversial radical urban 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. It was only later discovered that authorities decided to "...let the fire burn."

The film is the winner of Best Editing in a Documentary Feature and has received Special Jury Mention for Best New Documentary Director at the Tribeca Film Festival.

"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" - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
