After the success of 2006's Manufactured Landscapes, director Jennifer Baichwal and acclaimed photographer Edward Burtynsky have teamed up once again to tell the story of humanity's relationship with water.

Featuring breathtaking cinematography and shot in ultra-high definition video, Watermark travels to ten different countries, exploring myriad ways that water affects our daily lives. From the construction of the world's biggest dam in China, a search for clues about our planet's past on a glacier in Greenland, and a religious festival in India where thirty million people bathe in the Ganges in search of spiritual cleansing, we cross the globe in search of water’s unifying power.

A humbling and thought-provoking work, Watermark brings together diverse experiences with water to illustrate that it's not just humanity that depends on the vitality of our bodies of water, but the future of our very planet.
