Fyre Fest

This weekend I watched two (very stressful) documentaries about Fyre Festival and its aftermath on Hulu and Netflix. Before watching, I had heard very little about Fyre Fest, other than about how the musical acts dropped out suddenly. When I learned of the much more troubling reasons why that happened and about the conditions of the fest leading up to it and after, I was very surprised. Besides the hundreds of things I could discuss about the content of the film, I wanted to highlight the way imagery was the strength of this festival and how it was used to convince people to spend lavish amounts of money on a new festival that had some very high expectations to meet. It really shows how polished, well told visual stories can be powerful tools.
