Samy’s Camera to Screen Wildfire Documentary to Benefit Jesusita Fire Victims

After overcoming a devastating year of natural disasters, the Santa Barbara community will give back to victims and the heroes who risked their lives to save our home. Samy’s Camera and Tidepool Pictures will host the world premiere of Behind the Lines: Fighting a Wildland Fire, a documentary benefiting Jesusita Fire victims through the United Way’s Jesusita Fire Long Term Recovery Fund.
