Yellowstone 88: Song of Fire

Photo 6 Yellowstone88.06460


In the summer of 1988 dry lightning sparked a fire in the parched landscape of Yellowstone Park, igniting a blaze that would scorch over 1.5 million perimeter acres of the park. The fire only ceased after an intense snowstorm. That winter surviving Fauna, exhausted from fire and weakened by hunger, die in greater numbers than those claimed by the fire. But the seasons change, and life begins again. This animated short, guided by the narrative poem "Song of Fire," tells the story Yellowstone in '88.
