From the Ashes

“From the Ashes” Part One depicts the California wildfires’ impact on one community through expressive art. The Redwood Complex Fire was the “forgotten fire” when several October 2017 fires ravaged Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino Counties. After devastating losses, the people of the town had to reckon with trauma, fear, grief, and coming to terms with a new reality and how the impact of climate change threatens their very existence. From the Ashes demonstrates the resilience of a community as they take time to grieve, make sense of it all and rebuild lives with the knowledge that the next fire may be at any time. They lost life as they knew it, a feeling of safety in an idyllic environment.
