This short documentary video explores the good and bad sides of the social economic and environmental aspects of the issue of sugar cane burning on the island of Maui Hawaii. Sugar cane is burned in the field as part of the harvesting process. Interviews with Maui residents, a water supply expert, a sugar cane expert, and an official statement are included.

Some of the statements of those interviewed are opinions, and should be distinguished from statements of fact. The statements made by persons interviewed do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the people who produced this documentary video.

The issue of sugar cane burning is complex, this video is only an introduction to some of the different viewpoints, and cannot encompass every facet in ten minutes. This documentary video attempts to maintain a balanced approach to the subject.
