MORE DETAILS: Celebrities and activists including Jason Momoa, Laura Dern, Rosario Dawson, and Woody Harrelson come together to identify a singular, unifying factor behind climate change and environmental crisis: the deteriorating state of the world’s soil. This crucial film fuses journalistic exposé with deeply personal stories to unveil a dark web of money, power, and politics behind our broken food system and offer radical, hopeful solutions for our planet’s future. The filmmakers courageously confront the corrupt government structures and corporate influences dictating contemporary farming practices and they highlight the white, Black, and Indigenous farmers who use alternative regenerative agriculture with the potential to balance the climate, save our health, and stabilize America’s economy—before it’s too late.
