This award-winning film by Jennifer Baichwal follows Edward Burtynsky as he travels through China photographing the evidence and effects of that country’s massive industrial revolution. The Three Gorges Dam, factory floors a kilometre long and the breathtaking scale of Shanghai’s urban renewal are subjects for his lens and our motion picture camera. Shot in Super-16mm film, the documentary extends the narratives of Burtynsky's photographs, meditating on human impact on the planet without trying to reach simplistic judgements or reductive resolutions. In the process, it shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it.
“Beautiful, insightful and thought-provoking” –Al Gore
“A protracted exploration of the aesthetic, social and spiritual dimensions of industrialization and globalization.” –New York Times
