Thursday, April 27, 6:30-8 p.m.

Bud Werner Memorial Library, 1289 Lincoln Ave., Steamboat Springs

The Library and Routt County Wildfire Mitigation Council present a documentary about reimagining our relationship with wildfire as our community dives into the Wildfire Mitigation Conference. “Elemental” takes viewers on a journey with the top experts in the nation to better understand fire. It follows the harrowing escape from Paradise, California as the town ignited from wind-driven embers and burned within a few hours of the fire’s start. It then continues to the even more recent fires just two years ago, when Oregon suffered our worst wildfires in recorded history. Narrated by David Oyelowo, “Elemental” includes the voices of climate experts, Indigenous people and fire survivors, and asks us to reimagine our relationship with wildfire as we prepare for an increasingly hotter future.
