Pickford Film Screening: Elemental: Reimagine Wildfire
May 18, 2023 @ 7:30 pm$12
Co-presented by Whatcom Million Trees Project, Whatcom Conservation District, & RE Sources.
Filmed across the West and narrated by Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actor David Oyelowo, ELEMENTAL: REIMAGINE WILDFIRE (84 min) takes viewers on a journey with the top experts in the nation to better understand fire. The film follows the harrowing escape from Paradise, California as the town ignited from wind-driven embers and burned within a few hours of the fire’s start. It then continues to the even more recent fires of the last two years, when Oregon, California and Colorado suffered their worst wildfires in recorded history. ELEMENTAL: REIMAGINE WILDFIRE includes the voices of climate experts, Indigenous people and fire survivors, and asks us to reimagine our relationship with wildfire as we prepare for an increasingly hotter future.
At the 5/18 showing Alexander Harris, RE Sources Land & Water Policy Manager, will by part of a panel discussion on how NW Washington communities can build climate resilience and better coexist with wildfire.
