About this Event
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.
Join us for a special screening of ELEMENTAL, 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 7pm and after the screening stay for a Q&A discussion with experts.
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. Elemental has been selected for over 30 film festivals and it will be premiering nationwide starting April 7, 2023 and it will be available on streaming June 2023.
