The Burning Season trailer

Dorjee Sun, a 29 year old entrepreneur, believes there’s money to be made from saving rainforests in Indonesia and making a real impact on climate change. Armed with a laptop and a backpack, he sets out across the globe to find investors in his scheme.

Meanwhile another burning season gets underway. A small-scale farmer wrestles with the dilemma of clearing his land. And at her rehabilitation centre in Borneo, a wildlife carer battles overcrowding and despair as more orangutans are rescued from the fires.

This is the story of a young man not afraid to single-handedly confront the biggest challenge of our time. His determination to succeed and his award-winning achievement will uplift and entertain audiences and inspire hope in our future.

The Burning Season is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this week, ahead of an Australian theatrical season from 9 July, 2009.
