Manufactured Landscapes


Watched Manufactured Landscapes by Edward Burtynsky. Pretty much an amazing film.

The section on the Three Gorges Dam project was really interesting for sure. The idea of being paid to dismantle the town you lived your whole life in so that huge ships could one day pass through is mind boggling.

The ship breaking section is beautiful and terrible as well. I’ve been interested in this activity since seeing a photo essay on the process years ago. All in all I liked this film alot more than I thought I would. Kinda was expecting a Koyaanisquatsi rip off or something but really forgot about comparisons after the first scene.
