The Burning Season

Directed by Cathy Henkel
Australia, 2008
Documentary

Synopsis

Every year, poor farmers on the Indonesian islands set fire to areas of pristine rainforest to set up palm oil plantations. The smoke chokes up the air of neighboring countries, endangers forest wildlife, and emits vast tons of carbon. The Burning Season is an inspirational and uplifting eye-opener.
