Through the exploration of geo-therapy strategies, Dirt Rich presents timely solutions to reverse the effects of runaway global warming by re-stabilizing atmospheric carbon levels through the return of carbon to the soil, simultaneously solving two of the most challenging environmental problems of our time.
Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each showing. Tickets are $8.50 General and $7.50 for Seniors & Students.
The filmmaking team of the award winning environmental documentary, Angel Azul, presents Dirt Rich, a creative and ambitious first of its kind as it comprehensively shifts focus on the topic of global warming from one of emissions, to carbon draw down. All too often we as a society try to address issues in a compartmentalized fashion that limits the effectiveness of solutions by underappreciating the positive and negative synergies of interconnectivity. Dirt Rich employs a refreshing approach, blending a narrative feel with documentary filmmaking. By doing this, it relaxes resistance to new ideas and perspectives and gives viewers a chance to re-set their understanding by connecting people on a human and emotional level free from compartmentalization. Through beautiful footage shot around the world, thought provoking metaphors, dual messaging, and fantastic music, Dirt Rich empowers viewers with knowledge and inspiration to participate in solutions that can literally reverse the vast effects of runaway global warming.
We are alive during a very narrow window of time available to re-stabilize atmospheric carbon levels and replenish the planet’s desperately depleted soils. With over 400 carbon parts per million in the earth’s atmosphere, and only enough good soil to support 64 more harvests on the current trajectory, Dirt Rich presents the timely strategies necessary to address these critical issues. Through regenerative agricultural practices, reforestation of abandoned land, protection and the restoration of carbon rich wetlands, and protection of keystone species, Dirt Rich educates and inspires viewers to contemplate how our choices matter, and that everything on this planet connects.
