April 7, 2022

Daniel Hoffman, an anthropologist and faculty at the Jackson School and Comparative History of Ideas, is featured in this UW News release on April 7 about co-producing “The Maple Cutter,” a documentary about the story of Justin Wilke, who was accused of starting a wildfire while illegally removing trees from the Olympic National Forest.

Hoffman co-produced the film Lynn M. Thomas, a UW history professor.

A trailer for the film is included in the news release. The film screened at the UW on March 30, followed by a Q&A.

The documentary is part of the Unthinkable Film series, sponsored by the Simpson Center for the Humanities, which gathers UW faculty members “to develop short documentary films that speak and theorize on our planet’s cataclysmic, unpredictable or unprecedented future.”
