BALE Commons

​​​The BALE Commons Environmental Justice Film Series kicks of the year presenting "Manufactured Landscapes"


This film presents the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. Internationally acclaimed for his large scale photographs of manufactured  landscapes - quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines and dams. Burtynsky creates stunningly beautiful art from civilization's materials and debris. The film follows him through China as he shoots the evidence and effects of that country's massive industrial revolution. With breathtaking sequences such as the opening tracking shot through an almost endless factory, the filmmakers also extend the narratives of Burtynsky's photographs, allowing us to meditate on our impact on the planet and witness both the epicenters of industrial endeavor and the dumpking grounds of its waste. In the spirit of such environmentally enlightening sleeper-hit as An Inconvenient Truth, Manufactured Landscapes powerfully shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it without simplistic judgments or reductive resolutions.


This Thursday, September 24th at The BALE Commons (35 S. Windsor St, South Royalton) from 7 pm - 9 pm.


All are welcome!  Watch the film trailer here.
