Timely fire documentaries at Sebastiani Theatre



Sebastiani Theatre hosts a special event in partnership with the Sonoma Ecology Center. On Monday, Oct. 8, exactly one year after wildfires ignited around the North Bay, the theater will screen Wilder Than Wild: Fire, Forests and the Future. This one-hour documentary film by Kevin White addresses how fire suppression and climate change have exposed our forests and communities to large, high-severity wildfires. The film starts at 7 p.m., with light refreshments and wine served at 6 p.m. A panel discussion following the film will include Supervisor Susan Gorin, soundscape ecologist and Sonoma Ecology Center board member Bernie Krause, Ph.D. (both of whom lost their homes a year ago), Sonoma Ecology Center research biologist Caitlin Cornwall, and film producer Steven Most. Doug McConnell of OpenRoad will moderate. Suggested donation per ticket $20 at Brownpapertickets.com. The Sebastiani Theatre is located at 476 First St. East, Sonoma.

The theater will also host the world premiere of the documentary Waking Up to Wildfires on Nov. 4. Emmy-winning filmmaker Paige Bierma uses her lens to tell the stories of people most affected by the 2017 North Bay wildfires. 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. This 30-minute documentary, beginning at 3:30 p.m., is free to the public and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker, scientists, firefighters and others. This event is sponsored by the Sebastiani Theatre Foundation and the Environmental Health Sciences Center at U.C. Davis. Voluntary contribution to the Sebastiani Theatre Foundation is encouraged at the door. Tickets at vendini.com.
