BRING YOUR OWN BRIGADE

BRING YOUR OWN BRIGADE

2021 (USA) 119 minutes

Directed by: Lucy Walker

Oscar nominee Lucy Walker’s (Waste Land) latest documentary takes a sharp look at the apocalyptic wildfires in California. Named after those who hire private brigades, the film asks important and uncomfortable questions that look past the issue of climate change. With investigating eyes, Walker clears the smoke on a hot topic and uncovers deadly ignorance and bureaucracy through hidden fire stories and on-the-ground experiences of firefighters and residents struggling through deadly fires. An earth-shattering, eye-opening, and frustrating portrayal of our present that everyone should watch.

Premiere – 2021 Sundance Film Festival
