Wildland

Wildland

Directed by Alex Jablonski, Kahlil Hudson

Filmed over one fire season, Wildland is a sweeping yet deeply personal account of a single wildland firefighting crew as they struggle with fear, loyalty, dreams, and demons. What emerges is a rich story of working-class men — their exterior world, their interior lives and the fire that lies between.

This was a very good film. I've seen others that focused more on the back story and less on the job, or were more dramatic; meaning more glorified. Wildland concentrates on the hours of monotony that are punctuated by minutes of terror. I have tremendous respect for these young men and women who take on this calling and I say calling because it's so much more than a job! Tip o' the hat to the editors, and well done to all involved with the film.

The filmmaker's did an amazing job in piecing all of this adventure together. An there is a deep sense of pride to be taken in from the men who put themselves on the frontlines of these fires, an the long arduous days work these guys endured together like a brotherhood all to achieve the honor and glory of being on the line. i hope they produce more documentaries like this giving a more in depth look into being a firefighter or hotshot!

Fairly interesting, brief look into new wildfire firefighter recruits, as they do their initial 5-day training, and go off to fight a portion of the now-infamous Camp Fire that ravaged California. Personally, I liked the cinematography of it. The music and poetry helped the story flow smoothly. I just wanted to see more of the background of the firemen, and what happened after they were finished with their first season.
