Produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow and narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, DIRT! includes interviews with farmers, soil scientists and "soil activists" across the globe to better understand the least understood of resources.
If the trailer is any indication, this will be a phenomenal film. The film is now available for pre-order in DVD and will be screened at a few upcoming festivals, including Bioneers '09.
A quote from the DIRT! website:
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. Dirt is the ultimate natural resource for all life on earth.
