ICE ON FIRE, a Leonardo DiCaprio’s documentary on climate disruption, showcases natural and technological climate solutions. Filmed around the globe, the magnificent cinematography captures the beauty of a planet worth saving. Conners, who also directed and produced the “Eleventh Hour” with Di Caprio, poignantly captures the destruction but more importantly provides a stage for scientists and climate champions who are pioneering solutions. Tickets are available for $20 at Brown Paper Tickets. This screening event is presented by the Redwood Forest Foundation (RFFI) and Sonoma Ecology Center.
The film starts at 7:00 PM. Viewing ICE ON FIRE on the big screen is a moving experience that cannot be duplicated on TV. The stunning cinematography and music enhance the experience and impact of this compelling film. The eye-opening film focuses on many unheralded solutions designed to mitigate our intensifying environmental crisis. It transcends the current climate change conflict and offers hope that we can actually stave off the worst effects of global warming, if we act quickly and intelligently. RFFI Chief Forester Linwood Gill and RFFI North Coast Biochar Project Director, Raymond Baltar, are both interviewed in the film presenting climate solutions. This section is filmed in the Usal Redwood Forest, one of the largest non-profit owned ‘working community forests’ in America. Usal is a forest landscape that covers a land area almost twice the size of the city of San Francisco. RFFI manages the Usal Redwood Forest Carbon Project, one of the largest forest carbon projects in the nation.
