For almost thirty years internationally renowned Canadian artist Edward Burtynsky has been creating large scale photographs of landscapes transformed by industry. Manufactured Landscapes follows Burtynsky to China as he travels the country capturing the evidence and effects of China’s incredible industrial revolution. The film guides us through such rarely seen sites as the Three Gorges Dam, the interior of a factory which produces 20 million irons a year, and the enormous scale of Shanghai’s urban renewal. Manufactured Landscapes extends the ideas presented in Burtynsky’s photographs, demonstrating the human impact on the planet, without trying to reach simplistic judgements or rudimentary resolutions.
In The Toronto Star Geoff Pevere says, “… Manufactured Landscapes is an extraordinary fusion of style and subject.”
