Synopsis:
Jennifer Baichwal's award-winning documentary centres on renowned artist Edward Burtynsky whose large-scale photographs portray the devastating impact of industrial expansion on the environment. Burtynsky creates stunningly beautiful art from the materials and debris of civilisation, provoking questions about ethics and aesthetics without trying to easily answer them. The film follows Burtynsky through China, photographing 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 ground of its waste.
