Manufactured Landscapes


Dir. Jennifer Baichwal (Canada: 2006), 80 mins: Filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal travels along side Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky in this documentary film about the impact humans and technology are making on landscapes. This film explorers the constant production and consumption of our society. The award winning film focuses on the rapidly growing China to capture their ‘manufactured landscapes’ through motion picture. The film looks at waste dumps, large manufacturing companies and the people who are forced to rapidly produce products for constant consumption. Manufactured Landscapes has received a Genie Award for Best Documentary in 2007, a Toronto Film Critic Association Award for Best Documentary and Best Canadian Film in 2006. Manufactured Landscapes allows the viewer to see the impact humans have on the environment and how our actions can affect other places around the world.
