MAWS After-Dark/Dirt: The Movie*
This film is brought to you by MAWS...
MAWS is a group of environmental professionals, scientists and students who work, live and learn in and around the great State of Maine. We gather to discuss changes in the regulatory climate, to offer expertise to help shape wetland related regulations, and to discuss and further the appreciation and understanding of Maine wetlands and wetland ecology.

DIRT! The Moviedirected and produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosowtakes you inside the wonders of the soil. It tells the story of Earth's most valuable and underappreciated source of fertilityfrom its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation.

The opening scenes of the film dive into the wonderment of the soil. Made from the same elements as the stars, plants and animals, and us, "dirt is very much alive." Though, in modern industrial pursuits and clamor for both profit and natural resources, our human connection to and respect for soil has been disrupted. "Drought, climate change, even war are all directly related to the way we are treating dirt."

DIRT! The Movienarrated by Jaime Lee Curtisbrings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.

DIRT! The Movie is simply a movie about dirt. The real change lies in our notion of what dirt is. The movie teaches us: "When humans arrived 2 million years ago, everything changed for dirt. And from that moment on, the fate of dirt and humans has been intimately linked." But more than the film and the lessons that it teaches, DIRT! The Movie is a call to action.

* A silent auction will be presented with items from Patagonia, Horny Toad, Cabalas, LL Bean, Maine Ski Resorts, and others.
