Fires, dir. Michael Rymer, Ana Kokkinos and Kim Mordaunt, Australia 2021, 104 min., English
Volunteer firefighters Tash (Scanlen, Babyteeth) and Mott (Hunter Page-Lochard) are put in an unthinkable position on a routine call-out; a couple, played by Miranda Otto and Richard Roxburgh, are forced to flee their farm.
Over six standalone episodes and featuring a terrific ensemble cast, this powerful anthology series dramatises some of the human stories behind the headlines that dominated ‘Black Summer’.
These intimate dramas are portraits of resilience in the face of disaster and an urgent reminder of the real-world impact of the accelerating climate crisis. By turns terrifying and heartbreaking, this is a powerful act of commemoration.
