Dirt! The Movie: This insightful and timely film tells the story of the glorious and unappreciated material beneath our feet. Inspired by the 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, will later return to, and that sustains us every day of our lives.
Bag It: Is Your Life too Plastic?: Try going a day without plastic. Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in surprising and sometimes even frightening ways. In this touching and funny film, we follow Jeb Berrier, a guy making a resolution to no longer use plastic bags. The story evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its affect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

It’ll teach you something, it’ll make you laugh, it’ll help you see your part in the solution.
