Event Information

DIRT! The Movie – directed and produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow – takes you inside the wonders of the soil. It tells the story of Earth’s most valuable and underappreciated source of fertility – from its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation.

The opening scenes of the film dive into the wonderment of the soil. Made from the same elements as the stars, plants and animals, and us, “dirt is very much alive.” Though, in modern industrial pursuits and clamor for both profit and natural resources, our human connection to and respect for soil has been disrupted. “Drought, climate change, even war are all directly related to the way we are treating dirt.”

DIRT! the Movie – narrated by Jaime Lee Curtis – brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.

Free and open to the college community. Presented by the Bucks Sustainability Committee.
