Free ‘Manufactured Landscapes’ Screening: Industrial Extremes

06.15.10 Marina Galperina

There’s a free film screening of Jennifer Baichwal’s Manufactured Landscapes at the Hasted Hunt Kraeutler Gallery this Thursday at 6pm. The doc follows photographer Edward Burtynsky through whole villages of electronic waste scavengers, mega-mega-factory complexes and quarries surreal in size. See the entire contemporary civilization resting on a heap of debris, endlessly self-regurgitating. Sample visuals above.
