Film Screening of The New Normal and Wildfires Through the Heartwood
A film screening of two films, KRCB's The New Normal: Visions of Healing and SoCo Dance Theater's Wildfires Through the Heartwood.
The New Normal looks at our community one year after the October fires that killed 44 and obliterated neighborhoods in Santa Rosa and the surrounding towns. The filmmakers visit musicians, poets and visual artists who are trying to represent the calamity in ways that promote resiliency, and talk with members of the Latino community and supporters, who demand that next time, our Spanish speaking and undocumented neighbors aren’t left behind. Filled with music, poetry, art and love, the film responds to the “new normal,” where climate change threatens our lives and livelihoods.
Wildfires Through the Heartwood features dances before and after the October fires in Root 101, Bruce Johnson's Sculpture Garden at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts. Many of the sculptures were damaged in the fire. The two films, before and after the fires, are woven together and include narration by Bruce Johnson and Brenda Lopez, who lost her home in Coffey Park.
Free with General Admission.
