SYNOPSIS: 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: 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?
