It was a spectacular experience that gave our class a sense of how important water is around the world, and how it is used and misused in many different contexts. A theme that struck home with the students was that of ‘water-theft’. They were surprised and reflective on how many examples were given of water being redirected and stolen.
Through the breathtaking photography of Edward Burtynsky, Watermark explored water around the world through its unique formations as well as how humans have manipulated water for their own purposes. Students were able to reflect on the meaning created by the audio/visual effects in the film, as well as appreciating the amount of time, planning and precision that went into the making of this documentary.
A very special thank you to Tattersall and Lou Solakofski for inviting and hosting us!
