About the film:

Fire & Flood documents these near-simultaneous climate disasters in the fall of 2017 through the voices of 24 LGBTQ+ people who led projects for the resilience of their communities and bioregions. In connecting the wildfire experiences of Californians with the hurricane experiences of Puerto Ricans, the film provides a unique view into the shared histories and enduring legacies of colonization, and highlights queer and trans resilience projects that point to transformational solutions for the roots of our climate crisis.


- Lake Herrick Pavilion is wheel-chair accessible from the Intramural Field Parking Deck.

- Spanish interpretation will be available. The documentary has bilingual captions for mixed English and Spanish-speaking audiences.

- Another version of the film is available with English-only captions for Deaf and hard of hearing. Please contact us through this form if this version would be more accessible to you and we will set-up a second screen to play these subtitles simultaneously.
