Tumultuous, lush, unfamiliar and epic – multi-award winning director Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes) returns with this mesmerising symphony on humankind’s relationship with water, reflected through the vision of internationally acclaimed photo artist Edward Burtynsky.

Shot in stunning ultra-HD, The Watermark plunges you into the turbulent interconnections between our seas and watercourses and neo-industrial human endeavour. We visit vast floating farms and the biggest arch dam in the world, the leather tanneries of Dhaka, the US Surf Open, and the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, where thirty million people gather for a sacred bath in the Ganges.
