2015 Sustainability Film Series

Regular museum admission; free to U of M students, faculty and staff with ID

The 5th Annual Sustainability Film Series continues...

Watermark is a feature documentary from award winning filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier, and renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky. Shot in stunning 5K ultra high-definition video and full of soaring aerial perspectives, this film shows water as a terraforming element and the scale of its reach, as well as the magnitude of our need and use.

Watermark brings together diverse stories from around the globe and explores our relationship with water—immersing viewers in a world defined by a magnificent force of nature that we all too often take for granted.

The Sustainability Film Series is brought to you by the Bell Museum of Natural History in partnership with the University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment/Sustainability Studies Minor and University Dining Services.
