Manufactured Landscapes

The documentary Manufactured Landscapes follows photographer Edward Burtynsky as he travels the world observing changes in landscapes due to industrial work and manufacturing. This film is one of the most visually amazing films I have ever seen. The opening tracking is a shot that just goes on and on though an unbelievably colossal factory. Burtynsky photographs container docks, shipyards, mines, the Three Gorges Dam (largest dam in the world) and the toxic wilderness of an E-waste recycling site. The photos created and the film itself are able to capture a strange beauty in these industrial wastelands, while still pointing out the negative effects, and not in an annoying Green Party way.
