Manufactured Landscapes

November 20, 2019, 7:15 PM

"Awe-inspiring. Stimulates the senses and the conscience simultaneously” —Hollywood Reporter.

Manufactured Landscapes is the striking new documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. Internationally acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of “manufactured landscapes” — quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines and dams — Burtynsky creates stunningly beautiful art from civilization’s materials and debris.

The film follows Burtynsky through China, as he shoots the evidence and effects of that country’s massive industrial revolution. With breathtaking sequences, such as the opening tracking shot through an almost endless factory, the filmmakers also extend the narratives of Burtynsky’s photographs, allowing us to meditate on our impact on the planet and witness both the epicenters of industrial endeavor and the dumping grounds of its waste. In the spirit of such environmentally enlightening sleeper-hits as An Inconvenient Truth and Rivers and Tides, this film powerfully shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it.

(Unrated, 2006, 90 min.)
