About the Film
The wildfires whipping across the West’s wild landscapes this year are leaving behind record-setting and devastating damage. On the frontlines are fearless, skilled and determined women who are fighting more than fire. Outnumbered by men, they’re battling a culture of discrimination and harassment that marginalizes their voices. “Anchor Point” is a story about the women leading the charge for change:
Women using their voices to call out inequality.
Women speaking up about sexual harassment and assault.
Women training to advance their skills and building a network of support.
Women committed to making wildland firefighting better for the generations to come.
Come hear their stories at this special benefit screening hosted by Park City Film. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Women-in-Fire Prescribed Fire Training Exchange scholarship fund to support skills development in female firefighters.
The film will be followed by a Q&A with director Holly Tuckett, Kelly Martin, Chief of Fire and Aviation for Yosemite National Park (Retired) and President, Grassroots Wildland Firefighters, Lenya Quinn-Davidson, Director of WTREX, Fire Advisor at University of California Cooperative Extension, Humboldt/Del Norte and Director of the Northern California Prescribed Fire Council and, Lacey England, helitack firefighter, Custer-Gallatin National Forest, Montana. Emily Means, KUER reporter, will moderate.
Part of the Made in Utah Film Series.
