A Netflix film narrated by Woody Harrelson which unpacks the ways in which the Earth's soil may be the key to combating climate change, with scientists and farmers arguing for ‘regenerative agriculture’ to save the planet's topsoil
A unique and positive take on the importance of our soils. Described by the New York Times as inspiring ‘a rare feeling of hope’ this is a film which aims to remind us about the fragility of the biosphere, and how to care for it. It can be watched on Netflix or, alternatively, it can be streamed by schools for free at kissthegroundmovie.com. Shortlisted by the Tribeca Film Festival and rated 8.3 on IMDB it is an excellent film about the importance of our soils, and the danger of desertification.
Described as an ‘optimistic climate documentary’ by the New York Times, this is a film which argues ‘for the healing power of soil, which could offer a solution to the climate crisis’. Narrated by Woody Harrelson and featuring interviews with Gisele Bündchen, NFL quarterback Tom Brady, and Patricia Arquette, the filmmakers find a solution in regenerative farming which describes the practice of restoring degraded land and facilitates something called ‘carbon drawdown’.
It is a perfect film for students to consider the future of our food, mass production, intensive agriculture, and the worrying UN FAO statement that the world has roughly 60 harvests left.
