Ian Somerhalder, best known for his roles on The Vampire Diaries and Lost, has waited a long time for the release of the new Netflix documentary Kiss the Ground. The highly anticipated project, created by filmmakers Josh and Rebecca Tickell, takes a closer look at climate control and how we can change the way we treat our planet, along with exploring actions we can take to stabilize the Earth’s climate, restore ecosystems, and replenish food supplies. This informative documentary features amazing graphics coupled with incredible footage from NASA and NOAA, which illustrates the effects of drawing down atmospheric carbon and that soil is the missing element to climate control.
Ian made his excitement public on his Instagram stating: “This film is the greatest work of my lifetime and my greatest accomplishment (other than being born and having kids of course) I’ve never been more proud is anything in my life. Ever. You’ll see why. This is a simple solution to literally stop climate change in its tracks.” He also mentioned that some of this film was shot in Africa almost nine years ago while he was still working on The Vampire Diaries, along with cameraman Geoff Shotz.
The documentary is narrated by Woody Harrelson, and along with Ian Somerhalder there are appearances by David Arquette, Jason Mraz, and Rosario Dawson.
Kiss the Ground is set for release on Netflix September 22, 2020.
