Featured Documentary
In Waking Up to Wildfires, Emmy-winning filmmaker Paige Bierma uses her lens to tell the stories of people most affected by the 2017 North Bay wildfires. We’ll 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 event is FREE to attend and sponsored by the El Rey Theater and the Environmental Health Sciences Center at UC Davis. To help cover the costs of hosting, a voluntary contribution to the El Rey is highly encouraged at the door.
