RMPBS Community Cinema: Dirt! The Movie
USA, 2009, 86 Minute Running Time
Inspired by William Bryant Logan’s acclaimed book Dirt, the Ecstatic Skin of the Earth, directors Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow employ a colorful combination of animation, vignettes, and personal accounts from people to teach us about dirt—where it comes from, how we regard (or disregard) it, how it sustains us, the way it has become endangered, and what we can do about it. The fresh and generous spirit of Dirt! The Movie is simple and energizing.
DIRECTOR: Bill Benenson, Gene Rosow
