Deborah Koons Garcia’s film focuses on soil as a miraculous and transformative substance, which, with the right care and research, could help solve some of humanity's biggest environmental concerns including climate change, dead zones, water scarcity and world hunger.
Deborah Koons Garcia’s award-winning documentary Symphony of the Soil will be released theatrically in Los Angeles by Lily Films on November 8th at the Laemmle Music Hall.
The filmmaker also points to the indifference shown towards the subject, and how it is a resource often taken for granted and ignored. She combines these serious concerns with a skillful mix of art and science in which soil is revealed to be a living organism, and the foundation of life on earth.
Symphony of the Soil premiered at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History at the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital in 2012. This powerful film received an award from The Life Sciences Film Festival in Prague, Czech Republic, the Merit Award for Scientific Information from the Montana Cine International Film Festival, and the Cinema Verde Film Festival Food Award. In January 2013, Deborah Koons Garcia received the John de Graaf Environmental Filmmaking Award at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
Best known for the documentary The Future of Food, on genetically engineered crops and the corporate control of food, the documentarian continues to create films that tackle pressing issues that affect human's relationship with the environment and that will define the survival of future generations.
