About

Large uncontrolled fires and flames have severely damaged the Amazon rainforests of Brazil in the summer of 2019 and destroyed countless trees. The main cause of the fires seems to be the man-made slash-and-burn. The drought, which has lasted for months, favors the situation. Likewise, the radical policy of the new Brazilian government under right-wing populist President Jair Bolsonaro contributes to the destruction of the Amazon jungles. When the green lung of the earth burns, not only experts and international politicians are terrified. Protecting the world's unique ecosystem is of vital importance to all people of the world. The film examines the current environmental and humanitarian catastrophe in the Amazon region and gives voice to environmental activists as well as relativizing proponents of the fires.
