Symphony of the Soil
A Film by Deborah Koons Garcia
We are excited to announce that Symphony of the Soil is now available on DVD and can be purchased directly here, from the Sunbow Farm website. Symphony of the Soil is the latest documentary from director Deborah Koons Garcia (The Future of Food).
Symphony of the Soil explores the complexity and mystery of soil. Filmed on four continents and sharing the voices of some of the world's most highly esteemed soil scientists, farmers and activists, the film portrays soil as a protagonist of our planetary story. In a skillful mix of art and science, soil is revealed to be a living organism, the foundation of life on earth. Most people are soil-blind and "treat soil like dirt." With the knowledge and wisdom revealed in this film, we can come to respect, even revere, this miraculous substance. The film inspires the understanding that treating the soil right can help solve some of our most pressing environmental problems, from climate change, to dead zones, to feeding an ever increasing world population.
“Unfolding with gentle joy and an unexpected beauty, this ode to the miracle of the Earth’s topmost layer gives us a newfound respect for the ground beneath our feet.”
- New York Times, Critics Pick
