Dirt! The Movie

Friday, August 7 - Thursday, August 13, 2009

Screening in DocuWeeks 2009. DIRT! THE MOVIE tells the compelling story of humans and dirt — from Dirt’s point of view. In the beginning, Dirt and humans celebrate their union with grateful rituals and nurture a loving fruitful relationship. But as humans turn greedy and indifferent, they begin to slash away at forests, strip the land and level mountain ranges. When Dirt can no longer produce what humans need, they add chemicals that turn Dirt into something dirty. Now, Dirt must search for those select humans interested in saving their relationship, and all of humanity, before it’s too late.
