On Dec. 15 at 4:30 pm, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County presents a beautiful and environmentally conscious film. Watermark, a feature documentary created by world-renowned artists (filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier and photographer Edward Burtynsky), presents diverse stories from around the globe that examine the relationship between mankind and water.
The filmmakers travel from deserts to tanneries to one of the biggest dams in the world to showcase how the liquid shapes people’s lives, as well as how humanity affects this precious resource. Shot in stunning 5K ultra high-definition video and full of soaring aerial perspectives, the film shows water as a terraforming element and the scale of its reach, as well as the magnitude of our need and use. In Watermark, the viewer is immersed in a world defined by a magnificent force of nature that we all too often take for granted – until it’s gone.
The film is part of the UUFDC’s monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
