New documentary called Man on Fire which tells the story of a Methodist minister in rural East Texas who committed self-immolation in 2014 as a protest against the town’s silenced history of racial violence and continued segregation. The producer of the film, Dr. James Sanchez, grew up in this town and wrote his dissertation about this event and its aftermath. He will be available for a Q and A after the film.
