The latest film by Deborah Koons Garcia (The Future of Food) explores the complexity and mystery of soil. Filmed on four continents and sharing the voices of some of the world's most highly esteemed soil scientists, farmers and activists, it reveals soil as a living organism, the foundation of life on earth. This beautifully photographed film begins with an exploration of soil science, then moves on to focus on our human relationship with soil, especially our use of soil as an agricultural medium. Ultimately it considers the "big picture" ideas, such as soil and climate change, water use, health and several topics supporting the case for treating the soil with care. Onscreen guides include Dr. Ignacio Chapela, Dr. Kate Scow, Dr. Fred Kirschenmann, Dr. Vandana Shiva, Dr. John Reganold and Dr. David R. Montgomery, among many others. Writer/Producer/Director: Deborah Koons Garcia. (US 2012) 104 min.

*Producer/Director Deborah Koons Garcia will be in attendance for a Q & A
