“Kiss the Ground” is a new film how about how regenerating the world’s soils has the potential to rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems, and create abundant food supplies. This film explains why transitioning to regenerative agriculture could be key in rehabilitating the planet, while simultaneously invigorating a new sense of hope and inspiration in viewers.
This film was chosen as the featured film of Interfaith Power & Light’s Faith Climate Action Week, April 16-25, 2021. Our theme this year is Sacred Ground: Cultivating Connections between our Food, our Faith, and the Climate. Learn more about the week here.
Plan to screen it at your congregation. Screen it following the COVID-safe regulations in your area. Some congregations are planning to host small, outdoor, distanced screenings projecting the film on a wall or screen. And some congregations are passing around a DVD to congregational families or Covid-pods for small screenings. DVDs available for sale through IPL.
