BURNINGDirector: Eva Orner
From the lens of Academy and Emmy-award winning filmmaker Eva Orner, BURNING takes an unflinching look at the deadly Australian bushfires of 2019-2020, known as ‘Black Summer.’ Fuelled by climate change, the nation’s hottest and driest summer ever recorded resulted in bushfires that burned over 59 million acres, killed and injured an estimated three billion animals, and affected millions of Australians. BURNING explores what happened as told from the perspective of victims of the fires, activists and scientists.
Produced by Propagate and Amazon Studios and executive produced by Dirty Films.
