The Onyx Downtown Screens Elemental
This film screens for one night only on Monday, May 8th at the Onyx Downtown at the Nevada Theatre, 401 Broad Street. There will be a post-film conversation with local wildfire experts.
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. Running Time: 84 Minutes
