Manufactured Landscapes,” directed by Jennifer Baichwa, explores a fast-changing China under the impact of the country’s massive industrial revolution as seen through the cameras of renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky. Burtynsky’s astonishing large-scale photographs reveal China as one of the dumping grounds of our wasteful lives and as “the world’s factory” for repurposing the waste. The film also looks at the lives of the Chinese people who are caught in this industrial revolution.

“This movie is very visually and mentally stimulating. It’s relevant to anyone curious about art, the environment or international relations,” says Rebecca Osborne, Sustainability Division intern.
