Event description

Description

Co-presented by the Mexican Cultural Institute

D.C. Premiere

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.
