Throw light into the shadows of my existence

A powerful, not to be missed film: Manufactured Landscapes. The ugliness of industrialization through the lens of a beautiful photographer. A hard look into our resource abuse and our waste, China at each step of the way--extraction, destruction, and construction. In that order.

My question: if we've manufactured these apocalyptic, superficial landscapes can we reject it? Can we say we've done it wrong until now and step back, create a newly manufactured landscape with sustainability, culture, (& at the risk of sounding too idealistic) with love in mind?

I just watched this. Very intense and very sad. I've heard of people boycotting products made in China, but they're not responsible for our consumption.
