Stories from 2017 Tubbs fire survivors situate a global climate crisis in Sonoma County and question how we can recover from trauma while providing insights to prevent the further demise of our communities and planet. Featured are interviews of scientists, politicians, theologians, psychologists, physicians, business people, climate activists, firefighters, people who lost their homes, and others. Visual footage helps explain the story: the effects of a firestorm, rebuilding, solar panels, electrification options, geysers generating electric power, controlled burns, as well as community members and organizations partnering to resolve issues. Narrated by Peter Coyote. (2022, 75 min.)  After the film, stay for the discussion and a panel of filmmakers and climate activists. The Sunday screening at 5pm will be in Spanish with Spanish speakers leading the discussion.
