The Toronto-City Award for Best Canadian Feature Film goes to Jennifer Baichwal’s compelling documentary MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES, a portrait of Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. Baichwal and artistic collaborator and cinematographer Peter Mettler follow the much acclaimed Burtynsky while he travels the globe shooting landscapes transformed through commercial recycling, manufacturing and industrial production, providing an arresting portrait of the effects of globalization through the photographic eye. The jury notes: "From its astonishing first shot to its overwhelming conclusion, this film is a profoundly evocative dialogue between artists of the highest calibre; finding exceptional beauty in the peril of our planet."
