Former Vice President Al Gore presented the "Reel Current Award" at the Nashville Film Festival to director Jennifer Baichwal for her film "Manufactured Landscapes" over the weekend before the screening of the film. "Manufactured Landscapes" focuses on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. "I didn't think that Davis Guggenheim could make a movie out of a slide show," said Gore, referring to the director of his Academy-Award winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," "and after being proved wrong, I would not have been surprised if someone said that Jennifer Baichwald could make a movie out of Edward Burtynsky's photographs, and she has done that and more. It is an extraordinarily haunting, beautiful, insightful, touching and thought-provoking movie." [Brian Brooks]
