Kiss the Ground was seriously snubbed by the Academy Awards, and it failed to even make the Top 15 shortlist for “Best Documentary Feature.” It was one of the most compelling and powerful documentaries of the last decade, and it sheds a spotlight on the significant subject matter of soil regeneration, ecology, and regenerative agriculture.

Directors Joshua Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell did a brilliant job bringing this film to life, and Woody Harrelson did solid work with its narration.

Digital Journal proclaimed it as one of the year’s “best documentaries” and hailed it as “Oscar-worthy” environmental documentary.
