The Pikes Peak Library District Special Collections will screen the documentary film In Our Own Backyard: Reflections on the Waldo Canyon Fire at 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 5 at Penrose Library. The film, made by PPLD’s award-winning producer/director Jamey Hastings, features the stories of families and individuals affected by the Waldo Canyon Fire and the first responders who valiantly battled the blaze in the neighborhoods of northwest Colorado Springs. Based on extensive interviews conducted by PPLD archivist Heather Norris, the film is a moving portrait of a community persevering hard times and coming together to rebuild.
