Manufactured Landscapes
Jennifer Baichwal, 2006, 90 min.
Manufactured Landscapes is the striking documentary on the world and work of renowned photographer 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 him 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, Manufactured Landscapes powerfully shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it, without simplistic judgments or reductive resolutions.
