Following their triumphant collaboration on Manufactured Landscapes, award-winning documentary filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal and acclaimed environmental photographer Edward Burtynsky reunite to explore the ways in which humanity has shaped, manipulated, and depleted one of its most vital and compromised resources: water. Transporting us all over the world — from the man-made All-American Canal on the Colorado River to the sacred waters of the Allahabad in India to the immense Xiluodu Dam in China — Watermark explores the massive impact that human intervention has had on the world’s water supply with images of astonishing (and sometimes terrifying) beauty. Poetic, thought-provoking, and visually stunning, Watermark is a timely and urgent reflection on one of the world’s most precious and essential resources. — Agata Smoluch Del Sorbo, TIFF. Colour, DCP. 90 mins.
