DIRT! The Movie, narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.
But more than the film and the lessons that it teaches, DIRT! The Movie is a call to action. “When humans arrived 2 million years ago, everything changed for dirt. And from that moment on, the fate of dirt and humans has been intimately linked.”
How can you affect that relationship for the better?
This is the official description from the film’s website or IMDb page.
“Earth Day has come and gone, and while many of us took time to think about our planet, we were probably focused on the things that happen on its surface. But the documentary DIRT! The Movie reminds us that what really matters on this planet is what happens in the first 6-8 inches of soil, the layer that makes much of life on earth possible.” – Jonathan Kim, Huffington Post, ReThink Reviews
“[DIRT! The Movie] is so packed with wisdom, knowledge, ideas, and purpose that I took four pages of notes while watching it and barely scratched the surface.” – Jen Dalton, Civil Eats
