How to Start a Fire: By Hand, No Matches

created at: 04/13/2012

You can imagine the scenarios: extra-minimalist camping trip, Joseph Cambell-cataloged heroic quest, oh-so-trendy zombie apocalypse, or simply a challenge for its own sake: you should know how to start a campfire. On your own, without a match, lighter, flamethrower, etc. Why? Cause it's fun, it's important, and someday, it may save your life.

This short film by The Perennial Plate – a Kickstarter-funded documentary series dedicated to socially responsible and adventurous eating – has all the details, a meditative soundtrack, and some hand-caught clam roasting to boot. All weekends should be spent this way.
