Marin Green Drinks

Movie Night! with Maya Khosla

Our next Marin Green Drinks is on July 10, 2018 (Tuesday). Our guest speaker is Maya Khosla, Wildlife Filmmaker and Biologist and she will share with us a Movie Night! Preview "Firewise: The Scientists Speak" and "Searching for the GOLD SPOT - The Wild After Wildfire"

“What could be left after wildfire?” SEARCHING FOR THE GOLD SPOT is a film about the amazing comeback of life in forests of California after wildfire. Maya documented a John Muir Project team from the Earth Island Institute that were searching for black-backed woodpeckers in the Sierras. In 2017 it was an official Wildlife Conservation Film Festival selection and showed at the Bioneers Conference.

Maya's presentation also features excerpts from "Firewise: The Scientists Speak." Her latest film tells the story of fires across the west through the current science. Close-up scenes of fire, firefighters at work, and of the natural world, will provide an intimate portrait.

Maya Khosla’s print and video work draws from years of attention to the natural world. Her filming and writing, both fiction and nonfiction, is deeply informed by forests that restore themselves after natural cycles such as wildfire. Her Golden Gate National Park guidebook, “Web of Water: Life in Redwood Creek” is devoted to the salmon of Muir Woods. Eariler this year Maya was selected as the tenth Sonoma County Poet Laureate.
