This upcoming weekend marks the Bay Area debut of the award winning film Manufactured Landscapes, documenting the work of artist, and Worldchanging supporter, Edward Burtynsky (full disclosure: Burtynsky serves on the Worldchanging board). Burtynsky is known throughout the world for his photographs documenting industry and its impact on the environment. The film follows the artist on his journeys through China recording the effects of the country's industrial revolution, and encouraging viewers to reflect upon the global impacts of industry. According to the Village Voice, "Nothing illustrates the monstrosity of globalized commerce more vividly."
The film will screen on Friday, July 20 in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Marin, with a special appearance by Ed Burtynsky at the Lumiere Theatre in San Francisco. The film will also show at Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley and the Lark Theatre in Larkspur.
