Hot Air is the story of twenty years of political struggle between politicians, scientists and activists wanting to reduce New Zealand's emissions, and corporate leaders and their lobbyists working to protect profits and commercial advantage.
Including a wealth of archival material and interviews, this feature documentary is a thoughtful and provocative response to the question: is it possible for a small modern democratic nation to address the greatest political challenge of our age?
