Film Description: What do beer cans, car tires, and water bottles have in common? Renegade architect Michael Reynolds uses them as tools of choice for producing thermal mass and energy-independent housing. For 30 years, New Mexico-based Reynolds and his green disciples have devoted their time to advancing the art of “Earthship Biotecture” by building self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony.
However, these experimental structures that defy state standards create conflict between Reynolds and the authorities. Frustrated by antiquated legislation, Reynolds lobbies for the right to create a sustainable living test site. Reynolds and his crew take opportunities to lend their pioneering skills to those who need it most. Shot over three years and in four countries, "Garbage Warrior" is a timely portrait of a determined visionary.
