WATERMARK - Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital
7:00 p.m.

Carnegie Institution for Science

WATERMARK (Canada, 2013, 92 min.) Washington, D.C. Premiere A feature documentary of astonishing beauty and perspective from filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier, and photographer Edward Burtynsky, who collaborated on the 2006 film, Manufactured Landscapes, Watermark transports us all over the world, revealing the extent to which humanity has shaped water, and how it has shaped us. We see the construction site of the biggest arch dam in the world in China, the barren desert delta where the Colorado River no longer reaches the ocean and the water-intensive leather tanneries of Dhaka. We witness how humans are drawn to water in the mass Hindu pilgrimage called the Kumbh Mela, when 30 million worshippers bathe in the Ganges in a single day.  Using incredible imagery, the film transforms watera resource often taken for grantedinto something spectacular and compelling. Directed by Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky. Produced by Nick de Pencier.

Discussion with Philip Brookman, Chief Curator and Head of Research, Corcoran Gallery of Art, follows screening.

Tickets, $10.
