Join us for full length screenings of WATERMARK, the documentary film that accompanies Edward Burtynsky’s WATER photography exhibition, now on view in Steele Gallery. Created by award winning filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier in collaboration with Burtynsky, the film brings together diverse stories from twenty countries across the globe, bearing witness to the many ways humans interact with, use, and control our most valuable resource.
The film screenings will be introduced by Dan Childers, Professor in the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University. He is co-Director of the Urban Sustainability Research Coordination Network, which is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). He has also been the Director of the Florida Coastal Everglades Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Program, and will soon be the Director of the Central Arizona-Phoenix LTER Program. His research focuses on wetland ecosystem ecology, urban ecology, and sustainability science. Dan has conducted research in many different freshwater and estuarine ecosystems around the world, including working for nearly 15 years in the Florida Everglades. In the last decade he has expanded his research portfolio to include urban ecosystems, water dynamics in cities, urban sustainability, and urban wetlands. Dan has published more than 120 peer-reviewed articles, won grants that have totaled over $28 million, and advised more than 30 Ph.D. and M.S. students.
