Posted at 8:01 AM, Jan 26, 2020

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - A little over a year since the Camp Fire ravaged the northern California town of Paradise, Ron Howard came to the Sundance Film Festival with "Rebuilding Paradise."

The documentary is about the aftermath of the fire, which killed 85 people and destroyed roughly 19,000 buildings.

In an interview, Howard said his film is "the story of a community, not the story of a fire."

National Geographic will release the film later this year.
