Recipe For Change | Building an Earthship in Ushuaia (2014)

The first feature length documentary having been conceived by the Valhalla Movement, Valhalla follows the story of Earthship Biotecture down in Ushuaia, Argentina as they and a group of academy students build a two room simple survival Earthship.

Earthships are fully off the grid buildings which catch their own rainwater - create their own food and energy - are made using recycled materials and treat their own waste all the while doing such in a very stable temperature eco construction that has begun to make waves around the world.

These buildings and the ecological movement has been gaining ground online for years but there still seems to be a challenge in our everyday life in making positive sustainable change come to life.

This documentary shines light on the simple recipe for creating this change that can allow us to radically change our outlook on the problems our world faces and our ability as individuals to make it happen.
