Stunning Australian documentary BURNING premieres today on Prime Video

- ADVERTISEMENT -

Today will see the premiere of the new Australian Amazon Original feature-length documentary, Burning, which takes an unflinching look at the deadly Australian bushfires of 2019-2020, known as ‘Black Summer.’

From the lens of Academy and Emmy Award-winning Australian filmmaker Eva Orner, Burning wowed critics when it premiered last month at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

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 is an exploration of what happened as told from the perspective of victims of the fires, activists and scientists.

The preceding years of drought plays directly into the ongoing hot-button issue of climate change, with the film drawing comparisons between government inaction and media perceptions, and a bushfire season that would wreak an extraordinary level of destruction upon the landscape – as well as posing questions about how we move forward as a nation to ensure this piece of history is never repeated.

Erika North, Head of Originals, Asia Pacific, at Amazon Studios said:

“As we are growing our Australian Amazon Originals line up, we are thrilled to announce the release date and trailer of the timely and globally relevant documentary Burning to our Prime Members.

“Burning tells an important Australian story and shines a light on the global issue of climate change, which poses questions about how we move forward as a nation to ensure this piece of history is never repeated. With the immensely talented Eva Orner at the helm, we know this is a documentary that will resonate with audiences both locally and around the world on November 26.”

Eva Orner said:

“I’m so excited to bring this film to a global audience when Burning premieres on Amazon Prime Video. I hope it inspires and motivates audiences and governments to urgently act on climate change and the dire emergency our planet faces.”

Burning is produced by Propagate and Amazon Studios and executive produced by Cate Blanchett’s Dirty Films. The documentary is produced by Eva Orner and Jonathan Schaerf, with Executive Producers Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens. Eva Orner also directs.

Burning will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video on November 26.
