Symphony of the Soil

To mark the UN International Year of Soils, we present a 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, this film portrays soil as a protagonist of our planetary story. Through a captivating mix of art and science, we come to respect, even revere, this miraculous living organism, and appreciate the power and potential that soil has to help solve environmental problems.
