Symphony of the Soil NYC Premiere

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join us for the New York Premiere of Deborah Koons Garcia's film Symphony of the Soil!

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.

Producer/Director Deborah Koons Garcia will be in attendance along with UC Berkeley Microbial Ecologist Dr. Ignacio Chapela and Dr. Michael Hansen, Senior Scientist with Consumers Union, for a Q&A after the film.
