Out of the Ashes

Z popela

On the 7th February 2009, bushfires tore through Victoria, Australia. The fires killed 173 people; destroyed over 2,000 homes and incinerated swathes of prime forest and its wildlife. Fires, though, are a natural process and these mountain forests need fire to regenerate. Told in beautiful cinematography, this is the story of how Nature rises out of the ashes.
