Michael Reynolds is a maverick American architect. Garbage Warrior is a feature-length documentary. It tells of his fight with and ultimately triumph over bureaucracy as he seeks to create a space, in New Mexico, where he and his colleagues can develop radical approaches to sustainable housing.
He is anything but mainstream. This is the story of an extraordinary individual and his dream to create more sustainable ways for people to live in the world. He built houses out of things that other people discarded – old tyres, bottles, beer cans. The houses that he built in New Mexico were off all the utility grids. They were autonomous units generating their own power, processing their own sewage. Collecting their own water.
