 Symphony of the Soil

Part of “Films for Change” 

Sponsored by TRU’s Office of Environment and Sustainability

Presented by Kamloops Food Policy Council

April 29, 2015 @ TRU Alumni Theatre (Clocktower), Kamloops, BC

Doors open at 6:30.  Admission is by Donation

 

Symphony of the Soil is a 104-minute documentary feature film that explores the complexity and mystery of soil. Filmed on four continents and sharing the voices of some of the world’s most esteemed soil scientists, farmers and activists, the film portrays soil as a protagonist of our planetary story. Using a captivating mix of art and science, the film shows that soil is a complex living organism, the foundation of life on earth.   Yet most people are soil-blind and “treat soil like dirt.” Through the knowledge and wisdom revealed in this film, we can come to respect, even revere, this miraculous substance, and appreciate that treating the soil right can help solve some of our most pressing environmental problems

Symphony of the Soil was an official part of the United Nations Celebrations for the International Year of the Soil at the United Nations in New York and in Rome, Italy.  2015 is the International Year of Soils as declared by the United Nations.

Panel discussion follows with a TRU scientist, current president of the Kamloops Shuswap Master Gardeners, and a local organic farmer.  Plan to stay after the movie to enjoy a lively discussion about the critical need to understand and treat our soil with respect.
