Friday Eye Candy: The 'Most Definitive' Film About Water

Canadian filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier created a feature length documentary film called Watermark to capture the “existential interactions around the world with water."

Zach Sokol’s review of Watermark is effusive to say the least. “From a technical standpoint, Watermark might be the most definitive look at water ever caught on film,” says Sokol.

“The full-length result provides an unprecedented vantage into something that we easily take for granted—not only does the documentary bring viewers on a globe-trotting voyage, but it even illuminates the water-full areas in which access to the outside world is limited, from China's largest fish farms, to Mexican oil rigs, and even India's sacred Kumbh Mela pilgrimage.”

Sokol’s article includes a description of some of the technical decisions employed to capture the film’s images, as well as a collection of incredibly beautiful stills taken from the film, which include water in natural states and water captured and manipulated by human infrastructure. The film is currently showing around the country.
