Wilder Than Wild – with discussion

Kevin White traces a journey from the 2013 Rim Fire to the 2017 wine country wildfires

This illuminating documentary highlights the issues facing our planet with regard to wildfires, revealing how fuel build-up and climate change have exposed Western wildlands to large-scale, high intensity wildfires, contributing to global warming and jeopardizing our forests.

Filmmaker Kevin White traces a journey from the Rim Fire of 2013 to the wine country wildfires of 2017, exploring the proactive use of prescribed fire to reduce reliance on reactive fire suppression, meeting with a California tribe who have renewed their tradition of cultural fire, and scientists and resource managers with innovative ideas about how to restore and manage the lands we love.

Director: Kevin White (US 2018) 58 min.
