Narrated by award-winning actress, author, and social activist Jamie Lee Curtis, "DIRT! The Movie" delves into the fascinating history of this lowly substance, explaining how four billion years of evolution have created the dirt that recycles our water, gives us food, provides us shelter, and can be used as a source of medicine, beauty, and culture. But people have become greedy and careless, endangering this vital living resource with destructive methods of agriculture, mining practices, and urban development. This abusive behavior has yielded catastrophic results: mass starvation, drought, floods, and global warming. But as the film shows, times are changing — brown is the new green. Filmmakers Bill Benensen and Gene Rosow traveled to more than 20 locations around the world, visiting renowned global visionaries who are discovering new ways of thinking as they come together to repair this natural resource with practical, viable solutions.
