WATERMARK (2013)

Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky and Nicholas de Pencier's second collaboration, after 2006's MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES, brings together diverse stories from around the globe about humankind's relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use. We see massive floating abalone farms off China's Fujian coast and the construction site of the biggest arch dam in the world — the Xiluodu, six times the size of the Hoover. We visit the barren desert delta where the mighty Colorado River no longer reaches the ocean, and the water-intensive leather tanneries of Dhaka, Bangladesh. The viewer is immersed in a magnificent force of nature that is all too often taken for granted — until it's gone. DIR/SCR Jennifer Baichwal; DIR Edward Burtynsky; PROD Nicholas de Pencier. Canada, 2013, color, 92 min. In English, Mandarin, Bengali, Hindi and Spanish with English subtitles. RATED PG
