Light It Before it Burns
NOW Productions and Director Markéta Ekrt Válková develop a new feature documentary LIGHT IT BEFORE IT BURNS.
An ecologist wants to use fire to protect the environment. Is there method in his madness? A story of how fire can be a positive tool in our era of global warming and symbol for both renewal and societal change.
The film follows an ecologist’s attempts to implement new methods of nature and fire protection. After the huge fires around the world and locally in the Czech Switzerland park, fire is a topic fresh in the public’s imagination and vital for our future. While nature can adapt can our society?
The project has already received Development Funding from the Czech Film Fund and from the South Moravia region.
