Manufactured Landscapes

Manufactured Landscapes -- an incredible documentary about Ed Burtynsky work -- won The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television's Genie Award for Best Documentary. The film follows Ed on an incredible tour of land and industry in Asia.

Burtynsky makes large-scale photographs of quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines, dams. He documents civilization’s materials and debris in a “stunning” and “beautiful,” way. His work raises all kinds of questions about ethics and aesthetics.

Currently not playing in any theatres in Houston...but keep an eye out for this one.
