Movie Friday: Garbage Warrior

Escape to the movies with one of our "Film Fridays" selections. Each week we'll feature a movie with environmentally or socially responsible themes that’s currently in theaters or available on DVD.

Rebel architect Michael Reynolds has a different way of seeing beer cans. In a passionate quest to promote off-the-grid self-reliance, he travels the globe building shelters from discarded and recycled materials. In "Garbage Warrior," which made its U.S. debut earlier this month, director Oliver Hodge follows along as Reynolds constructs homes for survivors of Hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in India--while battling zoning and housing laws in his native New Mexico. All in all, a fascinating and inspiring movie.

If you're in Indianapolis or Princess Waterloo, Canada, don't miss the screenings next weekend. The rest of us will have to shell out for the DVD or settle for this trailer:


If you've seen the film or feel inspired to host a "Garbage Warrior" viewing party (if only to get your friends to chip in for the price of the DVD), let us know!
