Opening at the Cinema Art Theater
Starting on July 31, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater offers virtual cinema access to “Rebuilding Paradise,” a poignant documentary about an idyllic mountain town's recovery from a destructive California wildfire.
Filmmaker Ron Howard profiles the first responders and the families affected by the substantial wildfire that swept through the town of Paradise in 2018. Open, honest, and emotional interviews unite with sobering newsreel footage to examine the human side of natural disaster.[2020, US, 95 min, Rated: PG-13].
Leslie Felperin of “Hollywood Reporter” remarks, “A sincere and skillfully assembled tribute to a community's fortitude.” Victor Stiff of “That Shelf” writes, “The brilliance of Howard's film is that it forces us to consider the intangible pieces of our souls that we lose in the rebuilding process.”
