Watermark Takes a Visual Journey with Release of Official Trailer

A new trailer has been released in support of the anticipated documentary, ‘Watermark,’ which takes viewers on a stunning visual journey around the world. The film chronicles diverse stories from various countries that explore people’s relationship with water, including how we’re drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use.

‘Watermark’ is set to be distributed into theaters by Entertainment One on April 4 in New York and April 18 in Los Angeles. The movie was directed by documentarian Jennifer Baichwal and acclaimed photographer Edward Burtynsky.

Entertainment One has released the following synopsis for ‘Watermark’:

‘Watermark’ is a feature documentary film that brings together diverse stories from around the globe about our relationship with water. We see massive floating abalone farms off China’s Fujian coast and the construction site of the biggest arch dam in the world–the Xiluodu, six times the size of the Hoover. We visit the barren desert delta where the mighty Colorado River no longer reaches the ocean, and the water-intensive leather tanneries of Dhaka. We witness how humans are drawn to water, from the U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach to the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, where thirty million people gather for a sacred bath in the Ganges at the same time.

We speak with scientists who drill ice cores two kilometers deep into the Greenland Ice Sheet, and roam the sublime pristine watersheds of Northern British Columbia. 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.
