EcoCentre June Film Night – Garbage Warrior. 

What do beer cans, car tyres and water bottles have in common? Not much unless you’re renegade architect Michael Reynolds, in which case they’re tools of choice for producing energy-independent housing.

For 30 years, New Mexico-based Reynolds and his green disciples have advanced the art of ”Earthship Biotecture” by building self sufficient, off the grid communities.

Shot over 3 years and in 4 countries, Garbage Warrior is a portrait of a determined building visionary.

The film will be introduced by Melbourne based architect, owner-builder and eco village enthusiast Tony Kenny, whose own home has been fashioned from largely reclaimed materials for well under $60,000.

Corner Blessington & Herbert Streets, St Kilda
