"Up In Smoke"

Up In Smoke, is a film about an agricultural technique that could save more carbon emissions annually than all global aviation combined. It is a film about one of the biggest contributors to tropical deforestation and global warming: slash and burn agriculture. It sits at the crossroads of two of the greatest threats to global stability: accelerating climate change and diminishing food security. The film follows British scientist Mike Hands, who has laboured for 25 years to perfect a sustainable farming technique to replace slash and burn farming in equatorial rainforests. And he’s found it. Mike Hands has the solution, but is the world ready to listen?

Adam Wakeling, the film’s director, was on tour with the film and hosting a Q&A session after every screening. In addition, guest speakers attended some of the sessions.

Project Developments

In April 2012, following two excellent screenings of UP IN SMOKE at the Millennium International Film Festival, the UNDP decided to award the prize to the film for it’s emotive portrayal of a solution to one of the least understood social and environmental blights of our time. Mike Hands was also in attendance and was rightfully and wildly applauded when he climbed onstage.

The film Up In Smoke continues to win awards and gain influence around the world.
