PLANET IN PERIL
A Film Series on Climate Change

How do we understand and respond to climate change, global warming, and the wide range of environmental issues that may seem improbable but overwhelmingly urgent? The need is real and the issues wide ranging: land-clearing and property development, aggregate mining, farming, clear-cut logging, landfilling, garbage dumping, incinerators, water pollution, sewage disposal, illegal fishing, poaching, hydroelectric dams, oil and gas development, flash floods, persistent droughts, spells of unprecedented heat, sudden landslides, raging torrents pouring down from breached glacial lakes, tornadoes. Where do we begin?

The Regina International Film Festival & Awards (RIFFA) and the MacKenzie Art Gallery are pleased to bring to Regina a trilogy of films by multiple award winner, Jennifer Baishwal. Mark your calendar to join us for the screening of three films over three weeks.

Tickets can be purchased here.

This week's film:

MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES – August 1 – 7 pm

Manufactured Landscapes is a feature length documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. Burtynsky makes large-scale photographs of “manufactured landscapes” – quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines, dams. He photographs civilization’s materials and debris, but in a way that people describe as "stunning" or "beautiful," and so raises all kinds of questions about ethics and aesthetics without trying to easily answer those questions.
