This feature-length documentary focuses on internationally renowned Canadian artist Edward Burtynsky, who has spent the last three decades creating large-scale photographs of landscapes transformed by industry. He shoots quarries, scrap heaps, factories, recycling yards, dams and more. In this film, we follow him to China as he travels the country capturing the evidence and effects of the country’s massive industrial revolution. With Shanghai’s urban renewal as its subject, the film allows us to meditate on the human impact on our planet without falling back on simplistic judgments or reductive resolutions. Rather, it shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it.
