DIRT!
    The Movie tells the story of humans trying to re-connect to Dirt – the living skin of the earth. For thousands of years we humans got along very well with this magical matrix of all life on land. Then we grew apart. DIRT! The Movie explores how we can restore and repair this broken relationship… before it’s too late.


Sustainable Living 101 addresses the urgency for addressing Maui’s most critical sustainability challenges and also raises the awareness of community initiatives currently underway. Featured initiatives range from locally based projects in the fields of sustainable agriculture, watershed restoration, renewable energy, and green building.

Sustainable Living 101 is a documentary short focused on raising awareness within the Maui Community and beyond of the urgency for addressing sustainability challenges at the local level. Several Maui based initiatives addressing local sustainability concerns are highlighted and their champions interviewed. This documentary short places special emphasis on approaching challenges by blending both modern and traditional technologies and practices. Local food sustainability, education and community empowerment are featured topics.

The film was produced by The Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM) and University of Hawaii- Maui Community College (UH-Maui CC),

SLIM Executive Director Alex De Roode states, “In raising people’s awareness about projects already underway to address sustainability challenges within our own communities and informing them about how they can become involved in these efforts, our hope is to empower communities to create the reality they envision for themselves and to promote positive and meaningful change.”

Sustainability 101 was made possible by a grant from the Hawaii Community Foundation-Pikake Fund. The film is a collaborative project between SLIM ‘s Alex de Roode, veteran film maker Danny Miller and writer Janet Six of UH-Maui CC. SLIM is currently seeking support expand Sustainability 101 into a feature length documentary that explores sustainability within a Maui Island context.
