Every year deliberately lit fires rage across Indonesia. They destroy pristine rainforest, endanger orang utans and contribute to climate change. Emmy Award nominated film-maker Cathy Henkel follows carbon trading entrepreneur Dorjee Sun as he goes in search of a solution. This uplifting and inspiring story is narrated by Hugh Jackman and features Al Gore and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Burning Season has screened to sold out audiences in New York, Paris, St. Tropez, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and continues to attract audiences at corporate and community screenings and festivals across the globe.

“Every year, there is one outstanding documentary that you cannot miss, that people will talk about because of its significant to the planet’s future. This coming year, The Burning Season is that documentary.” – Hugh Jackman

“As inspiring as ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ was frightening.” – VARIETY Magazine
