I have another great movie you need to add to your calendar! On Fire is a movie that is based on events that happened during one of Northern California’s most catastrophic wildfires.
I think movies that are based on actual events are so inspiring! You see the best in people and you can see the bravery in others when disaster strikes.
About On Fire:
Inspired by true and harrowing events, On Fire tells the story of an ordinary man (Peter Facinelli) who finds his world suddenly torn apart as devastating wildfires rip through the surrounding countryside. With precious moments ticking by, he must flee with his son (Asher Angel) and pregnant wife (Fiona Dourif) if they have any hope of surviving the rapid forces of Mother Nature.

This movie has some incredibly talented actors – Peter Facinelli (The Vanished, Twilight), Asher Angel (Shazam! Fury of the Gods), Fiona Dourif (“The Blacklist”, “Chucky”) & Golden Globe nominee Lance Henriksen (Aliens, The Quick & The Dead).
“On Fire shows the extraordinary power that is inside every human. This gripping film serves as an important reminder that when disaster and uncertainty loom, so too do bravery, selflessness, and faith,” said Yolanda Macias, Chief Content Officer at Cineverse. “When On Fire blazes onto screens nationwide, it promises an unforgettable cinematic experience that will leave audiences inspired. Be prepared to embark on an emotional journey of survival, courage, and the unwavering power of the human spirit.”
The director, Nick Lyon, not only shares the inspirational story about the people who lived through these fires but also about the 911 operator who does an amazing job.
Ashlei Foushee embodied this wonderfully as a novice operator, experiencing her first fire. Her performance added nuance, and intensity, highlighting their incredible responsibility and the emotional turmoil such responders must endure.
When talking about directing “On Fire”, Nick Lyon said, “This is more than just a film; it is a call to action. Through compelling storytelling, it raises awareness about the escalating threat of forest fires and reminds us that we as humans live in nature, and as our societal footprint encroaches further and further into nature, we must respect its power.”
