Born in Montréal and raised in Victoria, British Columbia, Canadian documentarian Jennifer Baichwal’s visually stunning oeuvre is made up of insightful portraits of fellow artists and globe-trotting inquiries into the problems plaguing humanity as a whole—and sometimes, as in her film on photographer Edward Burtynsky, these two strands unite in a single film. Whether focused on a single subject or analyzing phenomena that affect billions, Baichwal never loses sight of the individual, with the result being a body of films that feel simultaneously epic in ambition and surprisingly intimate.
