The UC Davis Institute of the Environment, Environmental and Climate Justice Hub, Climate Adaptation Research Center, and Manetti Shrem Museum invite you to a very special presentation of a groundbreaking documentary urging us to rethink our relationship with wildfire.
Elemental: Reimagine Wildfire screening will start at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, at the Manetti Shrem Museum in the Community Education Room on the UC Davis campus. A panel discussion will follow the screening.
This event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
With fire seasons growing more destructive and more deadly, we see that our approach to reducing wildfire risk is failing. The way we respond to this risk will have long-term effects on our communities and our forests.
Don’t miss a special screening of Elemental: Reimagine Wildfire, a film that invites you to reimagine your relationship with wildfire through the eyes of top scientists and indigenous fire managers who are leading the way toward living with this essential element.
The film starts at 4:30pm in Community Room at the Manetti Shrem Museum, and after the screening the filmmakers will be available for a Q&A discussion.
About Elemental: Reimagine Wildfire
In the wake of recent fires, Portland filmmakers Trip Jennings, Sara Quinn, and Ralph Bloemers took to the air and the ground to help communities make sense of wildfires in a hotter, drier, more crowded world. Elemental is the product of their journey across the United States and into fire affected communities.
Chief of the United States Forest Service Mike Dombeck (Ret.) remarks that “Elemental is an outstanding film that deserves the widest possible viewing. In a visually stunning manner, it distills what we’ve learned about wildland fire over the decades and provides a road-map for badly needed changes that will benefit thousands of people, particularly in fire prone communities.”
Produced and edited in Oregon, Narrated by David Oyelowo (Emmy & Golden Globe Nominee), supported by National Geographic and Patagonia.
