Plot Summary

20 countries, 47 locations, 6 continents. The third in a trilogy that includes
Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013)

From concrete seawalls in China that now cover 60% of the mainland coast to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany; from psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains to conservation sanctuaries in Kenya and surreal lithium evaporation ponds in Chile’s Atacama desert, the filmmakers have traversed the globe to document the evidence and experience of human planetary domination.
