In this drama directed by Andrew Heckler, a young man’s love affair puts him in deadly peril with the Southern community that raised him. Based on the inspiring true story of the bridging of one of the biggest racial divides, Burden follows Klu Klux Klansman, Mike Burden (Garret Hedlund), who opens the Redneck Shop and KKK museum in historic Laurens, SC. When Mike subsequently falls in love with a single mom (Andrea Riseborough), under her influence, he quits the Klan and is taken in by an African American Reverend (Forest Whitaker). Our senior colorist, John Petersen, provided dailies for the production which filmed in Jackson, GA.
