A fantastic new film with a strong biochar focus!

The filmmaking team of the award winning environmental documentary, Angel Azul, presents Dirt Rich, a creative and ambitious first of its kind as it comprehensively shifts focus on the topic of global warming from one of emissions, to carbon draw down.

All too often we as a society try to address issues in a compartmentalized fashion that limits the effectiveness of solutions by underappreciating the positive and negative synergies of interconnectivity. Dirt Rich employs a refreshing approach, blending a narrative feel with documentary filmmaking. By doing this, it relaxes resistance to new ideas and perspectives and gives viewers a chance to re-set their understanding by connecting people on a human and emotional level free from compartmentalization. Through beautiful footage shot around the world, thought provoking metaphors, dual messaging, and fantastic music, Dirt Rich empowers viewers with knowledge and inspiration to participate in solutions that can literally reverse the vast effects of runaway global warming.
