EARTHSHIPS: NEW SOLUTIONS
Also featuring short films on sustainable building and design.
6:30pm Sunday 4th Nov, Mercury Cinema, Adelaide City
An inspiring and personal story about a group of people building sustainable housing in the Baja California peninsula in Mexico. It serves as an introductory guide to building alternative sustainable housing, as well as describing, with the use of animation, how these buildings offer solutions to today’s most important issues, like: energy, water, food, shelter, sewerage and recycling. The film features interviews with Michael Reynolds who was made famous through the documentary Garbage Warrior, which first introduced the Earthships theory to audiences around the world. Since then, the DIY rammed earth building style, which incorporates rain water catching and recycling, internal food gardens, compost toilets and optimal solar design, has become famous.
Followed by a community and professional panel on sustainable building and design.
