GETTING DOWN AND DIRTY

Dirt! the movie tells the secret story of the stuff we stand stand on everyday. One teaspoon of dirt has billions of good critters that make life possible every day - through weather, from the trees and forests to every bit of food we eat. This funny yet serious movie shows you how the living dirt beneath us is doing and how we are all made of and connected to dirt. Based on the book by William Bryant, you'll hear from top scientists to Riker Island criminals about the problems and the solutions to today's dirty mess. After watching this movie, you'll never look at dirt the same again. Are you ready to get DIRTy and take action in Toronto?
