DIRECTORS: Jennifer Baichwal + Edward Burtynsky, Canada, 2013, 90 minutes, Rated G
Featuring the stunning photography of renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky, Watermark is a feature documentary film that brings together diverse stories from around the globe about our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use. Through expansive Burtynsky visuals, 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. The combination of award-winning documentarian Jennifer Baichwal and master photographer Burtynsky, this is a spectacle to behold.
