Travel around with Annie, a former sex worker, Beth, a professor, and their dog Butch, in their E.A.R.T.H. Lab mobile unit, as they explore the complex history and politics of water on a quirky adventure across the Golden State in their E.A.R.T.H. Lab mobile unit.
On a journey that spans the sacred and the profane, tragedy and comedy, they meet with an array of water experts, activists, spiritual advisors and regular folks, seeking the truth about our relationship to water. They hike into the remote site of Nestle’s dubious water bottling racket. They play in the family pool where Annie gave her first blowjob. They commune with elephant seals, consult an oracle, and plunge a toilet. Beth anoints a parched shrub with water from her nostrils. They contemplate the flavor bouquet of drinking water made from wastewater. They even crash San Francisco’s Pride Parade with erotic water chants. The resulting assemblage of facts, thoughts and feelings about water composes a messy ecosexual philosophy about the intimate and life-giving qualities of the most vital liquid on Earth.
Ecosexuality shifts the metaphor “Earth as Mother” to “Earth as Lover” to create a more reciprocal and empathetic relationship with the natural world. When their road trip climaxes in a shocking event, their affectionate partnership with the Earth saves the day, reuniting their family and affirming the power of water, life and love.
