Co-directors Richard Dewey and Tim Marrinan discuss the making of “BURDEN,” a new documentary about a performance artist who shocked the world with his violent work in the early 1970s. Chris Burden ultimately left behind this provocative, innovative art when he moved out of Los Angeles to Topanga Canyon. There he began to create large, detailed installation pieces, which includes “Urban Light” (2008), one of his most iconic.
