‘Manufactured Landscapes’ (2006) 80 mins. Dir. Jennifer Baichwal

Following the work of photographer, Edward Burtynsky, we visit what he calls manufactured landscapes: slag heaps, e-waste dumps, huge factories in the Fujian and Zhejiang provinces of China, and a place in Bangladesh where ships are taken apart for recycling.

In China, workers gather outside the factory, exhorted by their team leader to produce more and make fewer errors. A woman assembles a circuit breaker, and women and children are seen picking through debris or playing in it. 

We conclude with a visit to Shanghai, the world’s fastest growing city, where wealth and poverty, high-rises and old neighborhoods jostle side-by-side.

All welcome, entry is Free and donations are appreciated. As always, books, t-shirts, badges or Zapatista coffee can all be purchased on the night.
