Pepperwood: Rising from the Ashes to be Featured at Wildlife Vaasa International Nature Film Festival in Finland
Two major wildfires separated by only two years have burned through the landscape at Pepperwood in Sonoma County, California. In a film by local filmmaker, Ian Nelson and produced by Coriolis Films, Pepperwood: Rising from the Ashes is a haunting and inspirational chronicling of one landscape’s relationship to fire.
How does our fire-adapted ecosystem respond to wildfire over time? How are the wildlife affected? What are scientists and ecologists doing to better understand and prepare for future wildfires? What can we learn from Indigenous peoples’ land stewardship practices? Can we improve our natural lands to better sustain the environment and protect our communities?
Featured at numerous film festivals, Pepperwood: Rising from the Ashes will now be featured at the Wildlife Vaasa International Nature Film Festival in Finland, which runs from September 28th to October 2nd of this year.
