The New Film 'Kiss the Ground' Will Have You Doing Just That

“From their picturesque five-acre avocado ranch in Ojai, California, Josh Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell have become darlings of the environmental movement via the award-winning documentaries and feature films they have written and directed with their production company, Big Picture Ranch. These titles include Good Fortune, Pump, The Big Fix, and Fuel; for the latter, they drove across the country in a car powered by algae gasoline.

Now the husband-and-wife team are set to debut their latest film, , a documentary about the movement to reverse climate change by pulling carbon out of the air and putting it back into the soil. (The film’s world premiere had been scheduled for April 22—the 50th anniversary of Earth Day—at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, but the festival is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.) Narrated by Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground spotlights the environmentalists and farmers who are leading the movement across the globe and features such eco-minded celebrities as Gisele Bündchen, Tom Brady, and Patricia Arquette. (Rebecca Tickell is herself a former actress—she starred in the Christmas movie Prancer when she was just nine years old.)” – Ingrid Abramovitch, Elle Decor
