Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label

   

Edward Burtynsky makes large-scale photographs of ‘manufactured landscapes’ – quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines, dams… He makes stunning and beautiful photographs of civilization’s materials and debris, and so raises all kinds of questions about ethics and aesthetics without letting us easily dismiss them. The film follows the steps of Burtynsky as he makes clear through beautiful photos the effects of China’s massive industrial revolution.
