COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Lors d'un voyage en Chine, le photographe canadien Edward Burtynsky documente les effets néfastes de la pollution et de l'industrialisation sur les paysages naturels.
Ce documentaire est à la fois une œuvre d'art et une réflexion sur l'industrialisation, la mutation des paysages et la condition humaine.

"La nature transformée par l'industrie est un thème prédominant dans mon travail. Ces images sont des métaphores du dilemme de notre existence moderne ; elles tentent d'établir un dialogue entre attraction et répulsion, séduction et crainte. Pour moi, ces images agissent comme des miroirs de notre époque."
(Edward Burtynsky)

For almost three decades, internationally renowned Canadian artist Edward Burtynsky has been creating large scale photographs of landscapes transformed by industry: quarries, scrap heaps, factories, recycling yards, dams. Manufactured Landscapes follows Burtynsky to China as he travels the country capturing the evidence and effects of China's massive industrial revolution. Rarely witnessed sites such as the Three Gorges Dam (50% larger than any other dam in the world), the interior of a factory which produces 20 million irons a year, and the breathtaking scale of Shanghai's urban renewal are subjects for his lens and our motion picture camera. Shot in sumptuous super 16mm film, Manufactured Landscapes 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, the film shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it.
