synopsis

The human approach has brought the planet Earth to a borderline called sixth mass extinction by scientists. Along with contemporary philosophies of thinkers such as Timothy Morton, calling for a radical change of the human relationship to the nature, the alarming fact has roused three documentarians to create a film that would be completely different from all the films showing beautiful landscapes and animals and would rather focus on everything that has been destroying this beauty. The suggestive shots of the places from all around the world that are most affected by extractions and industry serve as a proof of human short-sightedness and together with the highly-informative and brooding voice-over, they call for a last-minute change.

“Sometimes you need to go up in the sky to convey place, but if you stay up there all the time, you float away from what is meaningful.” E. Burtynsky, J. Baichwal, N. de Pencier   

biography

The renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky (*1955) and the documentarians Jennifer Baichwal (1965) and Nicolas de Pencier have been collaborating since 2006 when they made their first common film Manufactured Landscapes (2007) which was presented at the Ji.hlava IDFF. Together with Watermark (2014) and Anthropocene: The Human Epoch, the trilogy deals with the fatal effects the human kind has on the nature.
