DVMS and Strata Montessori School, in partnership with the Art Gallery of Hamilton, would like to invite you to the premier Hamilton screening of Watermark on Wednesday, January 29th, at 7:00 pm, at Landmark Cinemas 6 in Jackson Square, downtown Hamilton. The artist and the filmmakers will all be there.

Watermark is a beautiful film about the profound effect water has on humanity and humanity has on water. We are hoping that the DVMS/Strata community can come together to support this remarkable, visionary film based on the world renowned photography of Edward Burtinsky.

From the Globe and Mail review:

It is an immersive version of his ravishing photographs: thrilling, terrifying and enraging all at once. Baichwal and her editors have staged the film as a series of tiny mysteries, dropping us into landscapes and then parsing out clues to help us figure out where we are. She plays with silence and sound like a symphony.

The last film made by these filmmakers, Manufactured Landscapes, won for Best Canadian Feature at the Toronto Film Festival a few years ago. Watermark may be even more powerful and beautiful. (Bias alert – filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier happened to be two of my closest friends.)
