  1. The video has been blocked in the US and Canada, please try to spread it over there by other means whenever you have the opportunity!

  2. i found that it is very difficult to find it through regular youtube search. Even if you type in the full name it only appears after several pages of BS…anyway you guys keep spreading it and it will work it's way up 🙂 thanks for watching and sharing!

  3. FANTASTIC, merveilleux film et témoignages!
    Merci de le partager vu qu'il a déjà été censuré sur le continent de la tortue!

  4. 1:02:41 Composting trash? WHAT A TERRIBLE IDEA!!! Heavy metals, xylene, toluene in the inks, formaldehyde, phtalates, bisphenols in the plastics… Do you want to grow your food in that?

  5. Please, please, please can anyone tell me who to seek permission from to have this translated into Bulgarian for an Eco-Project that I wish to start. I love this!!!!

  6. Hi Jo, i am ilina from Bulgaria and I am also interested in showing the film with Bulgarian subtitles. What kind of Eco Project are you planning to make in Bulgaria? 🙂

  7. Hi Ilina, I hope to encourage water conservation and permaculture, I also have plans to build a straw bale house. I wanted to start showing films like this to the villagers to start getting some ideas and debate going, I sometimes think they wonder why we are all so keen to live there when many are trying to move to cities and towns. Bulgaria has such fabulous resources, the land is so fertile & lovely & I want to create some dialogue between locals & us in-comers..
    Where in Bulgaria are you?

  8. Join us on the March Against Monsanto! Around the world on May 25th 2013 people are going to the streets to protest the unethical practices of the Biotech giant. We don't want GMO's, we don't want patents on lifeforms, worldwide farmer bribery and suicide! Help us make the event massive and get Monsanto the publicity they deserve.

    Find the event closest to you!

  9. I am not sure whether I get your question, but I get the point of this documentary and its very much relevant. However, it would have been much nicer to have soil scientists actually commenting about soils, not geologist. I'm bringing this up as a soil scientist, nothing against the documentary, I actually applause the effort and the nature of the documentary. Nothing negative intended if that's your question.

  10. ok, i didn't get the foundation of your comment apparently, as the only sentance you wrote seemed to me as disapproving of the information in the doc.. no soil scientist ergo no valid info… other than that, agreed. An ss could add value to it. Other than that, what would you add as an s.scientist?

  11. This video made me cry….I wanted to apologise to the earth for all the times I did not love it, for all the things I have done which destroyed the livings organisms that sustain me, for all the negative actions of my fellow misguided humans who if they think of dirt at all, think that it is lifeless and valueless. Now more than ever I intend that the health club I will have will include a garden therapy class, a butterfly park, trees to hug and climb, fruit trees and herbs, a pasture, dirt

  12. Aloha Soil! dirt to the beautifull people and this beautifull actions and good examples, 4ever green, the best is happening cause of people like we, Aloha!

  13. I wish they went into more depth with how dirt works. How microorganisms trade and produce stuff needed for plant growth. Instead they just sort of personify dirt as a living organism itself.

  14. If everyone watched this and followed their advice to replant the plant the world would become a better place forever longer

  15. Dirt! the Movie – "I will be a hummingbird" – Wangari Maathai -DIRT! The Movie–narrated by Jaime Lee Curtis–brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.
    But more than the film and the lessons that it teaches, DIRT! The Movie is a call to action. “When humans arrived 2 million years ago, everything changed for dirt. And from that moment on, the fate of dirt and humans has been intimately linked.”
    How can you affect that relationship for the better?

  16. We're inspired by the passion of people who so often do not get to be heard by the mass media. I think we need to find a way through the junk that is mass media in order for the great people and works in this film to be heard and felt. What an amazing movie that is both shocking and inspiring. Hopefully we can find a way through to the mass…meanwhile I'll be the humming bird like the littlebricksfusion below….

  17. Bon sang ! !
    n'y a t il personne qui peut nous faire le plaisir de traduire à cette maudite langue française ? ! !

  18. topsoil left uncovered = death of the topsoil…
    thats all there is to it.
    it's actually in the bible… so much for science.

  19. So the arguemnt is:
    1) dirt is stone witch lives, we are alive so we are dirt!
    2) Dirt can die!
    3) therefore we die when dirt dies!
    4) becaus god exists and he creats all that existst he created dirt! And made humans out of it!

    I love the 3 one! we litteraly are diry! There are no difference btween human flesh and dirt! If you open a dead person up he's just full of dirt! 🙂 That is why they call some peopel! dirtbags! Also the reason we are dirt is becaus there are moor life in handfull of dirt then in us! Also cow dung is the beginining of dirt and we are dirt so cows shit humans! Also we are a mountain! apparently! very interesting! Also the best way to taste wine is eating dirt! Remember that one peopel! Remember the dirt next time!

  20. Thankyou for this essential documentary! All Schools need gardening projects to experience and understand life…. Cities need more of these gardening projects to be aware about life and the reason we are here, our real daily studdy learning, experience & work. Taking care of our Earth. A consiousness Humanity needs to find its way back to.

  21. At 1:02:14, Dr. Vandana Shiva says, "All our praying, our ancient prayers from the beginning of the agricultural season, begin with 'I know I have to take something from you Mother Earth; to feed myself, to feed my family, but I promise I will return as much as I can.'" Fine words and sentiment but maybe it is not true. I was baptised a Christian and one of the first prayers I learned was 'The Lord's Prayer'/'The Our Father'. I would say the central prayer of the entire faith. It runs as follows:

    'Our Father, who art in Heaven
    Hallowed be thy Name
    Thy Kingdom come
    Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven
    Give us this day our daily bread
    And forgive us our trespasses
    As we forgive those who trespass against us
    And lead us not into temptation
    But deliver us from evil.'

    To my mind at least, 'Give us this day our daily bread' is the line which best corresponds to what Dr. Shiva states in the quote I have written above. Okay, it is not the first line of the prayer but, at least as I see it, that is neither here nor there. It seems that what is missing is the "I will give back as much as I can" part. I am not aware of any Christian prayers that are said at the beginning of the agricultural season; I am not particularly religious. Any such prayers that are forthcoming in response to this comment are welcome – perhaps from scripture?

    My family did grow up with an image of reverence for the land hanging on the wall in the one and only hallway of the house. It is still there. I myself am reversing away from a mainstream career in financial services. I can see how the charging of interest, once banned in the Christian and Islamic faiths, has us all scrambling up the same slippery pole for financial solvency. I can see how this is eating away at the processes within the Earth that sustain us and is pitting us against one another. In short, I can see that the early Christians and early Muslims (and probably most other faith traditions) had a point in prohibiting the charging of interest on loans. Yet, across 15-16 years or so of formally studying economics, accounting, investment etc. and working in the financial world, the charging of interest was taken as a given. Very freeing to have taken a bigger picture view.

    I would not really call this a documentary. Interesting film. I can see that we need, as a species, to change our ways. Ways which were established long before anyone alive today was born. I agree that it is the biggest challenge we humans have ever faced. I think it can be done but it is not guaranteed. What is there to guarantee it? Such is the price of being able to determine our own future – individually and collectively. I am in that boat as much as you, as reader, are. I believe each of us can contribute in our own way. End goal? Well, none; only to continue on the planet. Only then can we honour our collective ancestors and ourselves. Without a continuation, what is the value of anything else we are directing our time and effort to? Okay, thanks for reading.

  22. Unbelievable, the documentary says humans arrived 2 million years ago and everything changed. They then proceed to show a picture of faming being done by humans. Oddly enough, UC Berkeley researchers did a study which was published through Nature on how humans didn't start altering the natural world until six thousand years ago when they start spreading out pushing agriculture everywhere they went and negatively altering all ecosystems everywhere they went. Sometimes it's tough to tell what any scientist actually believes until you uncover what motivates them. Most likely it's a worldview thing. sigh
