About the Movie
DIRT! THE MOVIE is an astonishing, humorous and substantial look at the glorious and unappreciated ground beneath our feet. Dirt feeds us and gives us shelter. Dirt holds and cleans our water. Dirt heals us and makes us beautiful. Dirt regulates the earth's climate. Why do we humans ignore, abuse, and destroy our most precious living natural resource? Consider the results of such behavior: Mass starvation, drought, floods and global warming. Narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, DIRT! THE MOVIE tells the story of humans trying to reconnect to dirt - the living skin of the earth. Traveling from the vineyards of California to the plains of Kenya, DIRT! reveals how repairing our relationship with dirt can create new possibilities for all life on earth.
Factually accurate. Quite exciting and inspiring considering the topic. It even manages genuine humor, which I didn't expect. There are a couple of very short 'fruity' sections but overall its a high quality production with a lot of heart that covers really important subject matter. It really changes the way you think about soil and its role in our world. Nothing political about this. As the film suggests it is simply the juxtaposition of survival versus decay. Highly recommended.
The subject matter is more important than people know. Well done movie and informative.
Dirt: Down to Earth
Dirt! The Movie details the significance of soil from the local level to the global scale. Informative without being too technical. Shows you the good and the bad and for the most part is not preachy and lets you make your own judgments. 80 minutes well spent.
