A documentary telling the epic story of maverick US architect Michael Reynolds and his fight to introduce radically sustainable housing – 8pm sharp Wednesday 18th January at The Spirit Centre, Nun’s Island, Galway. All welcome!
Garbage Warrior is an award-winning 2007 film about architect Mike Reynolds, inventor of the Earthship style of building, directed by Oliver Hodge. It follows Reynolds’ struggle with the legislature of Taos, New Mexico, the location of his experimental Earthship community, in order to be allowed to build homes that do not match the structures of local building codes. The film concludes with a postscript showing Reynolds and his team of builders travelling to the Andaman Islands in the aftermath of the tsunami to assist the locals with disaster recovery and teaching them how to construct extremely low-cost homes.

“Like Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’- this film demands to be seen by as many humans as possible. Time is of the essence.”
