Watermark ****

The personal appearances just keep coming at Landmark. First Charlie Siskel in La Jolla and now Edward Burtynsky in Kensington.

Director/executive producer and photographer/artist Edward Burtynsky will be at The Ken on Sunday, April 20 for a Q&A after the 2:30 pm show and to introduce the 4:45 pm show.

Watermark, co-directed by Burtynsky and award-winning filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes), is an eye-quenching documentary on humanity's thirst for, and dependence on, water.

“I thought about ways that I could build a body of work around the idea of water,” says Burtynsky. “I feel this project encompasses some of the most poetic and abstract work of my career.”

Given all the recent talk about The Ken's eminent closure, wouldn't now be a great time to show your support for the theater by putting in a personal appearance of your own?

Just came from seeing Watermark and I'm seriously thinking of going back on Sunday just to ask Mr. Burtynsky what his film is about. Water? Yes. People? Yes. Technology? Hydrology? Wet, dry, hot, cold, dirty water, clean water, hot water, ice water, high, low, up down, black white green yellow brown and lots of interesting patterns. But what was the film supposed to be about?

Perhaps he summed it up best himself when he said it was one off the most...abstract of his career. I found it abstract to the point of incomprehension. Long live art! I guess.
