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 fires 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. Former United States Forest
Service Chief Michael Dombeck says of the documentary:

”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.”

In the wake destructive fires across the nation, ELEMENTAL is an important look
at discovering how we can all reimagine our relationship with wildfire, and keep our
homes and communities safe. The solutions are now more timely and urgent than ever.
