'BURN' Detroit Film to Be Released to DVD on Tuesday

The critically acclaimed 'BURN' film, documenting Detroit firefighters and their struggle to save the city will be released digitally and on Blu-ray and DVD on June 18.


BURN’s Executive Producer Denis Leary shares, "’BURN’ is the first documentary to actually capture the danger and destruction that occurs inside of a burning building — and along with it the astonishing courage, incredible teamwork and dedication to saving lives that sets firefighters apart from the rest of us. They run in when everyone else is running out. Now you get to see how and why they do it."

A portion of proceeds will go to the Leary Firefighter Foundation to purchase equipment for Detroit firefighters. “BURN” will be available on Blu-ray and DVD that includes the widescreen theatrical version of the film as well as over four hours of extras.

The discs include deleted blooper moments, extensive commentary, interview with Denis Leary and more. The film will also be available digitally through the Sundance Institute, which allows independent films to make their digital debut through a variety of platforms to rent, download or stream, via Sundance Institute’s Artist Services program.
