Film Screening on Edward Burtynsky Tonight

Join us tonight for a film screening, Manufactured Landscapes, being held in conjunction with the exhibition, Edward Burtynsky: The Industrial Sublime, which is currently on view at the Art Museum. Here is what Zeitgeist Films has to say about this 2006 film by Jennifer Baichwal:

The film follows him through China, as he shoots the evidence and effects of that country’s massive industrial revolution. With breathtaking sequences, such as the opening tracking shot through an almost endless factory, the filmmakers also extend the narratives of Burtynsky’s photographs, allowing us to meditate on our impact on the planet.

The screening will be at 7 pm and will be held next door to the Art Museum in the new Visual Arts Building Auditorium. The event if free and open to the public. The Art Museum will be open tonight until 9 pm, so you can go look at Burtynsky's work either before or after the film screening!
