First Earth is about a massive paradigm shift for shelter: building healthy houses in the old ways, out of the very earth itself, and living together like in the old days by recreating villages. An audiovisual manifesto filmed over four years on four continents, it proposes that earthen homes are the healthiest housing in the world—and that since it still takes a village to raise a healthy child, we must transform our suburban sprawl into eco-villages. First Earth is not a how-to film, but a why-to film. It establishes the appropriateness of earthen building in every cultural context and under all socio-economic conditions: from third-world communities to first-world countryside, from Arabian deserts to American urban jungles. In an age of collapse and converging emergencies, the solution to many of our ills might just be getting back to basics, for material reasons and for spiritual reasons both personal and political.
