Join us on May 13th for the Astoria Premiere of ELEMENTAL: REIMAGINE WILDFIRE at the Columbian Theater followed by a Q&A with the Director and possibly local fire experts. Filmed in Oregon, Washington, California, Montana and Colorado, and Narrated by David Oyelowo, ELEMENTAL: REIMAGINE WILDFIRE takes viewers on a journey with the top experts in the nation to better understand fire. We follow the harrowing escape from Paradise as the town ignited from wind-driven embers and burned within a few hours of the fire’s start. The film continues to the even more recent fires just 2 years ago, when California, Oregon, and Colorado suffered some of our worst wildfires in recorded history – when the 2020 windstorm resulted in five simultaneous “megafires”. The film carries a hopeful note throughout, showing us what we can do to learn from top scientists and indigenous experts to prepare our homes and communities. Join us to reimagine your relationship with wildfire.
