Hummingbird [excerpt from dirt! THE MOVIE]
Produced by: Bill Benenson, Gene Rosow and Eleonore Dailly |
Dirt! The Movie is an insightful and timely film that tells the story of the glorious and unappreciated material beneath our feet. Inspired by William Bryant Logan's acclaimed book "Dirt: The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth" and narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, Dirt! The Movie takes a humorous and substantial look into the history and current state of the living organic matter that we come from and to which we will later return.
This segment animates a story from Nobel Prize Winner Wangari Maathai, about a brave hummingbird who struggles to do good while others just look on.
The animation in this segment was created by Suspicious Productions's Madevi Dailly and Andrew Fielding.
