“Ice on Fire” Screening in Sonoma August 26th
Sonoma Ecology Center, Redwood Forest Foundation Present ‘Ice on Fire’ at Sebastiani Theatre.
An HBO documentary on climate change SOLUTIONS produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio in partnership with Tree Media Group has sparked interest and conversation since its debut at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. Now the film – and the conversation – is coming to Sonoma as Sonoma Ecology Center and the Redwood Forest Foundation, Inc. (RFFI) proudly present “Ice on Fire” at the Sebastiani Theatre on Aug. 26.
“Ice on Fire” was accepted into the Cannes Film Festival in May, and premiered on HBO in June. Its arrival to the Sebastiani Theatre is its first Bay Area screening. This special event on Monday, Aug. 26 begins with wine donated and poured by Benziger Family Winery, plus light refreshments, in the Sebastiani Theatre foyer at 6 p.m. The film starts at 7 p.m., followed by a brief panel discussion moderated by Baltar and featuring “Ice on Fire” director Leila Conners, RFFI Chief Forester and Usal Forest manager Linwood Gill, and others to be announced. Sebastiani Theatre is located on Sonoma Plaza at 476 First Street East, Sonoma.
