Film Synopsis

Activists, scientists, farmers and politicians turn to regenerative agriculture to save the planet's topsoil.

Narrated by and featuring Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground reveals what it says is the first viable solution to our climate crisis: regenerative agriculture.

By regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil can be the missing piece of the climate puzzle.

The movie positions itself to catalyze a movement to accomplish what seems impossible: solving humanity’s greatest challenge, balancing the climate, and securing the future of our species.
