The Big Screen: ‘Man On Fire’ 12


In 2014 a white, Methodist minister set himself on fire as a protest against racism in his home town of Grand Saline, about an hour east of Dallas. This week, we talk with Joel Fendelman, the director of a new documentary about the incident and how it’s forced the town to reconcile its past and present.

Man on Fire” begins streaming on on Tuesday and will air on KERA-TV in January.
