WILDER THAN WILD: Fire, Forests, and the Future
Wildfire Prevention Films
The film reveals how fire suppression and climate change have exposed our forests and wildland-urban landscapes to large, high severity wildfires, while greenhouse gases released from these fires contribute to global warming. In this one-hour award-winning documentary, filmmaker Kevin White takes us on a journey from the Rim Fire of 2013 to the catastrophic wildfires of 2017 and 2018. Along the way, we learn how prescribed fires can reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire, we see a California tribe renew their tradition of cultural fire, and we meet stakeholder groups working with scientists and resource managers to build consensus on how to restore and manage the lands we love and depend on.
