La un moment dat a trebuit sa trec printr-o zona necunoscuta mie din Pennsylvania,  una dintre cele mai extinse zone de extractie miniera din Statele Unite ale Americii. Deodata am ajuns in orasul Frackville si m-am gandit ca ceva e tare ciudat aici. Am inceput sa conduc printre mormanele de zgura si cand m-am oprit am realizat ce mi se parea atat de ciudat – cat vedeam cu ochii, totul fusese transformat. Nimic nu mai era natural. (dupa Edward Burtynsky)

Manufactured Landscapes este un documentar bazat pe lucrarile artistului international Edward Burtynsky. Filmul il urmeaza pe artist in calatoriile sale in China, fotografiind efectele industrializarii masive.
Filmat pe Super 16 mm filmul extinde povestea din imaginile lui Burtynsky, meditand asupra impactului omului asupra planetei, fara insa a incerca sa judece simplist sau sa dea solutii imposibile. In proces documentarul incearca o constientizare in legatura cu lumea si felul in care traim.



I had to cross some unknown territory through Pennsylvania, which happened to be one of the largest strip mining areas in the United States. All of a sudden I was in this town called Frackville and I thought, “Something feels different here.” I started to drive around the slag heaps and then finally stood in one spot. It was then I realized that as far as my eye could see, everything had been transformed. There was nothing natural left. (by Edward Burtynsky)

Manufactured Landscapes is a feature documentary on the work of internationally renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. The film follows him as he travels through China photographing the evidence and effects of that country’s massive industrial revolution. The Three Gorges Dam factory floors a kilometer long and the breathtaking scale of Shanghai’s urban renewal are subjects for his lens and our motion picture camera. Shot in Super-16mm film, the documentary extends the narratives of Burtynsky’s photographs, meditating on human impact on the planet without trying to reach simplistic judgments or reductive resolutions. In the process, it shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it.
