Bloomberg Green, a news brand dedicated to reporting on the business, science and technology of climate change, will present an exclusive screening of the feature documentary Burning as part of its coverage of this year’s UN climate change conference, COP26, which is taking place in Glasgow.

The screening will take place on November 8, and will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Eva Orner (Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator). Burning is produced by Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens‘ Propagate and Amazon Studios, and executive produced by Cate Blanchett’s Dirty Films. The documentary will be released globally on Amazon Prime Video later in November.

Burning looks at the deadly Australian bushfires between 2019 and 2020, known as the Black Summer. The film explores what happened, as told by victims of the fires, activists and scientists, and also highlights the lack of political will to address climate change. Burning was a selection at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival, and will have its New York premiere at DOC NYC in November.

As part of Bloomberg Green’s coverage, Bloomberg.com will lift its paywall for Bloomberg Green, providing its content for free Nov. 1 to 12. During the week of Nov. 8, Bloomberg Green will host events in Glasgow and available on livestream, not including the Burning screening.
