From Ashes to Forest is a feature length film archived on the goldmine that is the National Film Board of Canada. Shot in Banff and Wood Buffalo National Parks, this film released in 1984 surfaces the need for fire to promote the renewal and health of the forest. Also called into question are the risks involved with the Smokey Bear campaign and brand of fire management.
Mostly, the film is beautiful, the soundtrack is majorly feel-good era specific, and it’s educational as can. Maybe you’ll learn a thing or two.
