“Inspired by William Bryant Logan’s acclaimed book Dirt: The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth, Dirt! The Movie takes a humorous and substantial look into the history and current state of the living organic matter that we come from and will later return to. The movie takes you inside the wonders of the soil. It tells the story of Earth’s most valuable and under- appreciated source of fertility–from its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation. Made from the same elements as the stars, plants and animals, and us, “dirt is very much alive.” Though, in modern industrial pursuits and clamor for both profit and natural resources, our human connection to and respect for soil has been disrupted. DIRT! The Movie brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impacts 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.” (Excepted from naturalhealthmanagement.com)
