Haze-zilla is a satire highlighting the destructive impact of corporate greed and transboundary haze. The film brings to attention the urgent need for legal measures to ensure that Malaysian companies will not contribute to haze locally and abroad. Designed as a movie trailer with the tagline “COMING SOON”, the short film emphasises the message that this environmental crisis will continue to recur if we do not take action.

Haze-zilla is part of Haze: Coming Soon, an artivism campaign to demand action on transboundary haze pollution in Malaysia. Every year, transboundary haze blankets Malaysia, caused by corporate giants financing the destruction of peatlands and forests in Indonesia. This hazardous haze has been a massive threat to the climate, public health, and biodiversity for decades. Studio Birthplace partnered with Splash and Burn to build momentum for Greenpeace Malaysia's campaign to hold polluters accountable. Through films, public murals, and an activist art exhibition, we convey the message that clean air is a fundamental right being violated.
