Symphony of the Soil Trailer
Symphony of the Soil is a 104-minute documentary feature film that
explores the complexity and mystery of soil. Filmed on four continents
and sharing the voices of some of the world's most esteemed soil
scientists, farmers and activists, the film portrays soil as a
protagonist of our planetary story. Using a captivating mix of art and
science, the film shows that soil is a complex living organism, the
foundation of life on earth. Yet most people are soil-blind and "treat
soil like dirt."
Through the knowledge and wisdom revealed in this film,
we can come to respect, even revere, this miraculous substance, and
appreciate that treating the soil right can help solve some of our most
pressing environmental problems. In addition to the feature film, there
are several short films, Sonatas of the Soil, that delve deeply into
soil-related topics, and several short clips, Grace Notes, that are
available to stream on the film's website.
Produced and Directed by Deborah Koons Garcia
