Directed by Isaac Kerlow
Singapore | 70 min | 2010
The burning of the peat forests throughout tropical Southeast Asia creates significant haze pollution that poses significant challenges to human health and the economies of the region. A government-sponsored transmigration program fueled the boom of oil palm farming and local minorities were displaced. Scientists, government officials, local farmers and displaced minorities present their conflicting points of view
