Elemental: Reimagining our Relationship with Wildfire

Doors: 6:30 PM
Showtime: 7:00 PM

With fire seasons growing more destructive and more deadly, we see that our approach to reducing wildfire risk is failing. The way we respond to this risk will have long-term effects on our communities and our forests.

Join us for the Boulder Colorado premiere of ELEMENTAL, a film that invites you to reimagine your relationship with wildfire through the eyes of top scientists and indigenous fire managers who are leading the way toward living with this essential element.

Stay after the movie for a discussion and Q&A session with the fire experts including University of Colorado’s very own Dr. Tania Schoennagel, who appears in the film.


In the wake of recent fires across the West, filmmakers Trip Jennings, Sara Quinn, and Ralph Bloemers took to the air and the ground to help communities make sense of what is happening – and what we can do to prepare for more fire on the land. Their work led to a deep investigation of wildfire in a hotter, drier, more crowded world, and includes wildfires that burned across millions of acres and destroyed numerous communities.

Five years in the making, Elemental is the product of their journey across the United States and into fire affected communities. Produced and edited in Oregon, Narrated by David Oyelowo (Emmy & Golden Globe Nominee), supported by National Geographic and Patagonia.
