Survivors of the Camp Fire can get an online sneak peek of the Ron Howard documentary Rebuilding Paradise this weekend. The original plan of the filmmaker to have it first shown in the Paradise Performing Arts Center. This couldn't happen, however, due to the coronavirus outbreak. Instead, the film's debut was at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, which was attended by former Paradise mayor Woody Culleton, who was one of several survivors featured in the documentary. "The first 10 minutes are of live fire footage and people escaping," said Culleton, saying it can be traumatic for some survivors. "Once you get beyond that it's the story about how does a town come back from total destruction," he said. "Ron did a really good job of showing that side of our community." Showings of the film online will be at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
