Watermark is a 2012 Canadian feature documentary film by Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky that brings together diverse stories from around the globe about humanity’s relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use.

The film explores massive floating abalone farms off China’s Fujian coast and the construction site of Xiluodu Dam, one of the biggest arch dams in the world – six times the size of Hoover Dam. It visits the barren desert delta where the mighty Colorado River no longer reaches the ocean and the water-intensive leather tanneries of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
