Michael Reynolds, Earthship Biotect

Armed with materials like old tyres, soda cans and plastic bottles, he strives to create self-sufficient communities using the existing activities of the planet.

The documentary by Oliver Hodge follows his struggle with legislature & bureaucracy, until rebuilding efforts in the wake of the 2004 Tsunami finally bring him recognition and acceptance.

Although I encourage you to buy or rent the DVD, there’s the full movie on Youtube for those unconvinced.
