Imagine a home that heats itself, provides its own water, and grows its own food. Imagine that it needs no expensive technology, recycles its own waste, and has its own power source. And now imagine that it can be built anywhere, by anyone, out of the things society throws away. Shot over three years in the USA, India and Mexico, Garbage Warrior tells the epic story of maverick architect Michael Reynolds, his crew of renegade house builders from New Mexico, and their fight to introduce radically different ways of living. A snapshot of contemporary geo-politics and an inspirational tale of triumph over bureaucracy, Garbage Warrior is above all an intimate portrait of an extraordinary individual and his dream of changing the world. Tsunami warning systems are put in after tsunamis, security is tightened after terrorist attacks, and well deal with global warming after it happens Michael Reynolds.
