January 20 – Garbage Warrior

Rubbish – it’s all around us and piling higher by the day. If lucky, it may get put in a green bin and recycled to be rubbish once again in the future. However, for one maverick US architect Michael Reynolds, waste is his construction material for building radically sustainable housing.

Garbage Warrior is a feature length documentary that follows one man’s triumph over bureaucracy and his aim to change the world. Reynolds experimental structures, named ‘Earthships’, do not meet building standards which unsurprisingly creates conflict between himself, his profession and the authorities who are backed by wealthy corporations. Natural disasters intervene to allow him to demonstrate his garbage construction to the world.
