California on Fire is a groundbreaking video and sound artwork by southern Californian artist Jeff Frost.

To create California on Fire, Frost trained as a firefighter, gained full access to more than 70 wildfires, and shot 350,000 photos over five years. The catastrophic effects of climate change serve as a backdrop to examine loss in California on Fire. Each of the film's five chapters are based on the stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, sadness, and acceptance. Frost utilizes time and sound as mediums to reveal an undeniable reality: we are already in a state of climate crisis. A panel discussion will follow the film screening.

A panel discussion featuring Jeff Frost, Cristopher Cichocki, Kaucyila Brooke, and moderated by Danielle Segura will follow the screening.

Artists harness the power of fire and ice to shape attitudes on climate change:
