Made from the same elements as stars, plants, and human beings, dirt is very much alive. Narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, DIRT! The Movie introduces viewers to soil’s fascinating history and explores Earth’s most under-appreciated and valuable source of fertility. This insightful film tells the glorious story of the material beneath our feet – from its miraculous beginning to its tragic degradation. More than a film, it’s a call to action. To learn more about this amazing film, visit www.dirtthemovie.org.
