The campus community is invited to a special on-campus screening of the critically-acclaimed, award-winning film “Elemental: Reimagine Wildfire.” The film has been selected for 40 film festivals, and screened to sold out audiences in fire country in Oregon, California and Washington – and it is touring nationwide in April and May.
Boise State is bringing the film, the filmmakers Trip Jennings and Ralph Bloemers, and Margo Robbins from the Yurok Tribe on campus for a special screening and discussion from 5 to 7 p.m. on April 21 in Room 110 of the Ruch Engineering Building. For those who are unable to attend but still interested in the film, “Elemental” is also playing on the big screen at the Flicks in Downtown Boise at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 20.
In 2017, the filmmakers set out on a journey to learn about wildfire, and community loss – and in the process they learned from the experts that what we can do to keep our homes and communities safe starts from the home outward. “Elemental” captures the best thinking on fire and provides us with solutions to meet the challenge ahead.
