The Fire Poppy


Innovative outdoor gear company Mystery Ranch asked us to profile female firefighter Sasha Berleman, nicknamed Fire Poppy. Sasha is working on the leading edge of fire management, advocating for a science-based approach that uses good fire to fight the bad. This documentary took us literally into the fire with Sasha, and into the heart of her work on behalf of Fire Forward. Look for the complete film to be released in fall 2023.


"Fire is a tool for good and medicine for the land and it’s people. Its use, a responsibility.” -Sasha Berleman, PhD, CaRx
