Made, Recycled, Dismantled in China

Posted by Josie | October 10th, 2007 | Filed under Design, Environmental Change, Sustainability

I happened to catch “Manufactured Landscapes” during its brief stint here in Portland and it brought my busy mind to a screeching halt. It’s a documentary about nature transformed by industry in rural and urban China through the lens of Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. It won several “Best Documentary” and “Best Canadian Film” awards since it was released earlier this year. I can say with absolute certainty that I will never look at the “Made in China” stamp again without thinking about the images in this movie and my personal contribution to their existence.

    I’ve been wanting to see this movie for awhile now and have heard nothing but good things.
