Visually stunning on an astonishing scale... POV Magazine

A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, this film is the third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark. From concrete seawalls in China that now cover 60 percent of the mainland coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built from Germany, to psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains and surreal lithium evaporation ponds in Chile’s Atacama Desert, the filmmakers have visited six continents to document the evidence of human planetary domination.​ At the intersection of art and science, the film profiles a critical moment in geological history—the provocative and unforgettable experience of our species’ breadth and impact. Subtitled.

Directed by Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky, Nicholas de Pencier
