“Dirt! The Movie” is the second offering of 2014 for the film series co-sponsored by the Coalition for Change and the Sierra Club.

Screening Wednesday, Feb. 12 at the Cozmic Cafe, 594 Main St. in Placerville, “Dirt! The Movie” is an entertaining and informative documentary on the cosmic connection to the soil.

With footage and interviews spanning the globe, “Dirt!” explores the historical and current relationship with the Earthʼs living skin. The unappreciated dirt beneath our feet is necessary for human survival. Dirt is very much alive, with one teaspoon of it containing a billion organisms.

“You will leave this movie with a new appreciation for soil and its importance in our daily lives. I doubt that you will be so quick to clean up the mud pies and dirt dams made by the children in your lives,” said Patty Wilson of Coalition for Change.

The award-winning film also takes a look at current efforts underway world wide to protect and enrich soil. Dirt warriors from all walks of life are using best practices to ensure that the connection between humans and soil remains a healthy one.

“It is heartening to know that so many people all over the world are working to make sure that the earthʼs soil will sustain us for the future,” said Bob Johnson of the Sierra Club.

Doors for the film at the Cozmic open at 6 p.m. with the film starting at 6:30 p.m. A $3 donation is appreciated to help offset the cost of the room rental.

Food service ends at 6 p.m. so come early if you want to grab something to eat or drink before the show.

Upcoming films in the series include: “Waste Land” (March); “Taking Root, the Vision of Wangari Maathai” (April); and “The Big Fix” (May).
