Ash and Oil: Fort MacMurray residents start to rebuild after wildfire

Fort McMurray residents were forced to flee a huge wildfire that destroyed much of their city in Canada’s Alberta province in May 2016. About 88,000 residents were evacuated from the oil-rich region during the fire, the costliest natural disaster in Canada’s history. More than a month later, some returned (Ash and Oil [9 min.]) to pick up the pieces and resume their lives.

Ash and Oil is a follow-up to National Film Board of Canada’s feature documentary Limit is the Sky (trailer).
