Opening at Sundance in January 2021, followed by quickly being picked up by Paramount+, Lucy Walker’s film ‘Bring Your Own Brigade’ dives into first responders and survivors’ stories on the Camp Fire and Woolsey Fires in California and the “hellish realization that all over this planet wildfires are burning us alive.” Walker also explores tactfully the complex science around these specific fires and the controversial topic that climate change is threatening mankind.
Lucy Walker is a twice Academy nominated English film director living in California who was named one of the “Top 25 New Faces In Independent Film” by Filmmaker. Her documentary directing career includes Waste Land and The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom, both nominated for the Academy Award in 2010 and 2011.
