Manufactured Landscapes
Jennifer Baichwal, 2006
Canada | Format: 35mm | 90 minutes

Peter Mettler in person!

Stunningly shot in super-16mm by Mettler, Manufactured Landscapes is both an absorbing portrait of the celebrated photographer Edward Burtynsky, who specializes in large-scale studies of industrial vistas, and a thoughtful exploration of the aesthetics and social and spiritual dimensions of globalization today. Director Jennifer Baichwal follows Burtynsky to China and Bangladesh, focusing on the human cogs in the machine by contrasting Burtynsky’s epic photographs with the tedium the workers endure and the sometimes toxic and alienating impact of globalization on the very people the transformations are supposed to benefit most.
