info about the film:
"What do beer cans, car tires and water bottles have in common?
Not much unless you're renegade architect Michael Reynolds, in which case
they are tools of choice for producing thermal mass and energy-independent
housing. For 30 years New Mexico-based Reynolds and his green disciples
have devoted their time to advancing the art of "Earthship Biotecture" by
building self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function
converge in eco-harmony. However, these experimental structures that defy
state standards create conflict between Reynolds and the authorities, who are
backed by big business. Frustrated by antiquated legislation, Reynolds lobbies
for the right to create a sustainable living test site. While politicians hum and
ha, Mother Nature strikes, leaving communities devastated by tsunamis and
hurricanes. Reynolds and his crew seize the opportunity to lend their
pioneering skills to those who need it most. Shot over three years and in
four countries, Garbage Warrior is a timely portrait of a determined visionary,
a hero of the 21st century."
