This documentary, directed by Jennifer Baichwal, features the world and work of Canadian photographer and visual artist Edward Burtynsky. Internationally acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of “manufactured landscapes” —quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines, and dams—Burtynsky creates beautiful and troubling images from scenes of environmental devastation.

Manufactured Landscapes follows Burtynsky through China as he shoots the evidence and effects of that country’s massive industrial revolution, including a critical focus on the Three Gorges Dam.

This film will be displayed daily as a companion to Yun-Fei Ji: Selected Works. Running time: 90 minutes www.kam.illinois.edu
