Dirt! The Movie – March 17, 2010

Have you thought about how you treat dirt? Probably with lots of fancy detergents. But what about the wonders of dirt? Soil, that is. On Wednesday, March 17 Awareness Film Night and Sooke Food CHI will present the film “Dirt! The Movie”. Made from the same elements as the stars, plants, animals and us, dirt is very much alive. “Dirt! The Movie”, narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, brings life to the environmental, economic, social and political impact that soil has. It shares the stories and knowledge 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. The film takes us inside the wonders of the soil, Earth’s underappreciated source of fertility.

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. Most humans these days ignore, abuse and destroy dirt, but it hasn’t always been so and it doesn’t have to be that way now. This 2009 movie offers a vision of a sustainable relationship between us humans and dirt. “Dirt! The Movie” is not only about dirt; it is about feeding everyone, clean water and air, health and happiness, and, it is safe for kids!  The screening will be followed by a discussion on dirt and growing with ALM Farm-ers.  Come early to browse booths from local farms and gardening groups. There will be tea and delectables available for a donation from the EMCS Culinary Arts students. The film starts at 7 p.m. in the Edward Milne Community School theatre.  Admission is by donation.
