Watermark

August 27 and 31 at 2:00
West Building Lecture Hall

Canadian artist Edward Burtynsky’s large-format photographs of altered landscapes are both visually stunning and deeply disturbing — revealing, as they often do, the far-reaching damage brought on by human activity. In Watermark, Burtynsky, co-director Jennifer Baichwal, and cinematographer Nick de Pencier take a contemplative (if sobering) approach to that most fundamental of all the elements — water. They travel around the globe to evoke the beauty, mystery, influence, and power of water over the course of time. (Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky, 2013, 92 minutes)
