Best of Arizona

At the borderlands of Southern Arizona in a remote town called Arivaca, an engineer, builder and solar power enthusiast has been toiling under the desert sun for over 10-years to hand construct an earthen structure that has no equal.

Director's Statement

I am excited to present a film made in the remote rural town of Arivaca, Arizona: "The Dome", which showcases in a strange unique perspective, the passion behind the creation of a Cob (straw/clay) structure by an eclectic individual - Bart Santello, whose diverse interests include solar power, natural building and filmmaking.
