The film was well received, some highlighted reviews featured below:
Alma Har’el, director and cinematographer of Bombay Beach, returns to Tribeca with LoveTrue, a genre-bending documentary, demystifying the fantasy of true love. From an Alaskan strip club, a Hawaiian island, and the streets of NYC—revelatory stories emerge about a deeper definition of love. Set to a hypnotizing score by Flying Lotus and executive produced by Shia LaBeouf.
Burden world premiere
Burden was chosen as one the 'must-see' films at Tribeca by Rolling Stone, Time Out and many more before the festival even started. Directors Tim Marinnan and Richard Dewey were present for a Q&A following the screening. They discussed the making of the film and how they handled Chris' passing during production.
Illustrated with performance, private videos, and recollections from those who knew him, this detailed and innovative documentary looks at the life of the always provocative artist Chris Burden, whose work consistently challenged ideas about the limits and nature of modern art, from his notorious performances in the 1970s to his later assemblages, installations, kinetic and static sculptures, and scientific models.
