Manufactured Landscapes by Jennifer Baichwal( visu )
23 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,160 libraries worldwide
This is a striking new documentary on 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. He argues that we have reached past the point now where we are at the mercy of the environment -- our planet now lives and dies at our mercy. This is not meant to be a frightening concept, though many of the images are sobering, in this chilling but ultimately beautiful documentary on what industrialization is doing to man and the world as we know it. Or used to know it. Manufactured Landscapes tells the story of these images, and how Burtynsky came to be so fascinated with the concept of human design. The film follows him through China, as he shoots the evidence and effects of that country's massive industrial revolution, showing us a glimpse of what it's like behind the scenes for a famous photographer in action. 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 dumping grounds of its waste

"Born in Eastern Kentucky, [Shelby Lee] Adams has devoted 30 years of his life to visiting and making portraits of families living in Appalachia, those who have been misrepresented in the media and derogatorily referred to as 'hillbillies' ...

A terminal diagnosis leads to a journey of self-discovery in this "moving, tremendously involving" (David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews) road comedy from writer-director Michael McGowan. Joshua Jackson gives a charming performance as Ben, an aimless young schoolteacher who learns he has cancer a few weeks before his marriage to Samantha (Liane Balaban). The fortuitous intervention of a used motorcycle and a Tim Hortons coffee cup advising him "Go west, young man," inspires him to set off across Canada, from Toronto to British Columbia, in search of ... well, Ben isn't sure. But the characters and sights he encounters along the way -- a cancer survivor who offers marijuana and marital advice; a beautiful folk singer (Emm Gryner); the Stanley Cup; and the majestic beauty of the Canadian countryside -- make for an experience in "which you can never feel more alive."
