China Discussion Group - Film Screening: Manufactured Landscapes

Rescheduled from February 13

Modern China is facing serious environmental problems created during the drive for rapid industrialization.  The beautifully filmedManufactured Landscapes documents the industrial landscapes and environmental impacts of the Three Gorges Dam, a shipyard, and the city of Shanghai in China as well as oil tankers from Bangladesh. The documentary was made by renowned filmmaker Edward Burtynsky. We will be following the film with a discussion of changes in China's environmental policies, based on its commitment in 2007 to using environmentally as well as socially sustainable practices to meet human needs.  

Screening is free of charge and everyone is invited.
