"Manufactured Landscapes" was the title of photographer Edward Burtynsky's major 2003 exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada. It was filled with the artist's signature works: disturbingly gorgeous photographs of massive strip mined quarries that resemble ancient temples, rivers turned blood red with the residue of nickel, and towering rusty ships that dwarf the Bangladeshi workers who dismantle them. You might call Jennifer Baichwal's similarly titled documentary an adaptation of that show. Glen Helfand reports.
