Yesterday, the TCA Winter Press Tour kicked off in Pasadena to promote PBS’ INDEPENDENT LENS documentary “DIRT! The Movie”. The film is meant to raise awareness about the unique world of dirt and its historical contribution to our lives. It also discusses how mistreating it can result in natural disasters. Jamie Lee Curtis takes on the role of narrator headed by filmmaker Bill Benenson, the TreePeople founder and president Andy Lipkis, filmmaker Gene Rosow and series producer Lois Vossen.
Natural disasters are a sad reality of our existence but dirt abuse is one contributing factor of a multitude of problems currently straining Earth’s resources.
It would be nice to create something like this one day but ”Earth Day” should be every day not one day.
If this documentary has piqued your interest, it will air April 10, 2010 on PBS.
