York Film Master Class: Jennifer Baichwal & Nick de Pencier
For the past two decades, Jennifer and Nick have collaborated on an extraordinary series of films, from their award-winning feature documentaries (Let it Come Down: The Life of Paul Bowles, Manufactured Landscapes, Payback, Watermark) and concert films (Long Time Running) to complex gallery installations in collaboration with photographer Edward Burtynsky.
Collaboration – with each other and with a dizzying range of diverse thinkers and artists – is often both fulcrum and dialectic for their project of making unforgettable images and ideas, ones that have captivated and challenged audiences around the world. With Anthropocene: The Human Epoch, their epic 2018 gallery exhibition/documentary co-production with Burtynsky, they explore radical new ways to co-author work, even as they bear unflinching witness to our global climate-change disaster.
