Waking Up to Wildfires: film and discussion

About this event

In Waking Up to Wildfires, Emmy-winning filmmaker Paige Bierma uses her camera to tell the stories of people most affected by the 2017 North Bay wildfires. We hear from survivors, firefighters, public health officials, community groups – and the scientists who are trying to make sense of it all while people struggle to recover and new fires erupt. The UC Davis Environmental Health Sciences Center produced Waking Up to Wildfires with a grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to help shed light on the plight of communities after these types of disasters. So many wildfire survivors have contacted us wanting to see Waking Up to Wildfires, we're posting it on YouTube in its entirety as part of the 2019 #ClimateStrike​ week of actions September 20 to 27.
