Dirt! The Movie, August 22nd

Dirt! The Movie

is an insightful and timely  film that tells the story of  the glorious and  unappreciated material  beneath our feet. Inspired by William Bryant Logan’s  acclaimed book Dirt: The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth.

Dirt! The Movie

takes a humorous and  substantial look into the  history and current state of  the living organic matter  that we come from and will later return to.

Dirt! The Movie

will make you want to get dirty!

After the movie, UC Berkeley Professor of BioGeoChemistry, Ronald  Amundsen, will speak about the importance of bringing our soil back to health, and there will be a general discussion.
