A dramatic painted impression showing the life of animals in a forest where a dangerous fire has broken out. Panic is conveyed through the brushstrokes which seem to quiver with life. Following a cyclical pattern common to many of Giersz’s films, “Fire” ends on a hopeful note as the first tiny sprout of new growth emerges.
