Watermark: new documentary

A new doc from Mongrel Media (a personal favorite) by Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky promises to be great. Here is a brief description and a trailer from the same folks who produced Manufactured Landscapes (also recommended).

Watermark is a feature documentary film that brings together diverse stories from around the globe about our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use. We see massive floating abalone farms off China’s Fujian coast and the construction site of the biggest arch dam in the world – the Xiluodu, six times the size of the Hoover. We visit the barren desert delta where the mighty Colorado River no longer reaches the ocean, and the water-intensive leather tanneries of Dhaka.
