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 by recreating villages. An audio-visual manifesto filmed over four years on four continents, it proposes that earthen homes are the healthiest housing in the world; and calls for transforming 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, under all socio-economic conditions.
