The Feather River College Environmental Studies Department, in partnership with Plumas Arts, presents a screening of the film “Hotshot.” All proceeds from the event will be donated to the nonprofit advocacy group Grassroots Wildland Firefighters.
The screening is set for Nov. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Hall Theatre at 469 Main St. in Quincy. Doors open at 5:45. Attendees may participate in a prize giveaway and silent auction. Beer will be provided by Quintopia Brewing.
Viewers can experience the world of wildland firefighting with “Hotshot,” directed by Gabriel Kirkpatrick Mann and shot over the course of six years. This documentary takes viewers into the heart of some of California’s most devastating wildfires, offering an unfiltered, closeup look at the challenges faced by Hotshot crews.
Organizers report that the film introduces an inspiring female Hotshot and her crew, who put everything on the line to protect public land and nearby communities. Their story, often overlooked, is a testament to human resilience and commitment. Audiences can experience the intensity and unpredictability of wildland firefighting like never before.
Grassroots Wildland Firefighters is dedicated to promoting and advocating for federal wildland fire personnel. Visit http://www.grassrootswildlandfirefighters.com for more information.
