This is a most beautiful and remarkable documentary, an obvious labor of love by Deborah Koons Garcia. If you want to understand the all-important life of the soil, this work of art will sink that understanding deep into your bones. Deborah found and filmed an amazing number of people around the world who themselves deeply understand the process of creation, destruction, rejuvenation and nurturance of the soil, and she weaves their stories together into a perfectly comprehensive and inspiring course about what the precious living crust of our planet means to us, and how we should care for it, and about it.
