Amazon Prime Video has ordered its first Australian Original feature-length documentary made in Australia, Burning.
The film’s team features executive producers Cate Blanchett (pictured) and Eva Orner, who also serves as director. Burning takes an unflinching look at the deadly Australian bushfires between 2019 and 2020, known as the Black Summer. The documentary is an exploration of what happened, as told from the perspective of victims of the fires, activists and scientists.
Produced by Propagate Content, Dirty Films and Amazon Studios, Burning will launch on Amazon Prime Video in 2021 in more than 240 countries and territories around the world.
