Garbage Warrior

Trashy V day! If you’re in New York and looking for a creative way to spend the evening, check out this doc screening tonight at 8p.m. at MoMA.

“Garbage Warrior. 2006. Great Britain. Directed by Oliver Hodge. Michael Reynolds is a maverick architect with a crew of renegade house builders who practice “biotecture” by using beer cans, car tires, and other detritus to build experimental living structures, particularly in areas devastated by hurricanes and tsunamis. The story covers over three years of their fight to introduce radical new ways of living in the U.S., India, and Mexico. 85 min.”

    My daughter is building schools (with bottles!) in Guatemala (El Quiche) with the Peace Corps and teaching Environmental Education…I will try to find the film for her and send it…is there more information available? The Thailand segment seems applicable to her site. The indigenous people there (many baby bottles) drink Coca Cola because they have been told it is good for them!!! and need to capture clean water. Great film! Ann Lyman
