Sydney Festival is hosting free screenings of Edward Burtynsky’s ‘In the Wake of Progress’ in Taylor Square from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily between 25 August and 18 September.

The presentation features a new work from acclaimed Canadian photographer, Edward Burtynsky, telling the story of human industry’s impact on Earth and urging us to rethink our legacy and seek a more sustainable future. 40 years in the making, In the Wake of Progress combines the most powerful photographs and film footage of Burtynsky’s career, characterised by award-winning aerial work and dramatic industrial landscapes. The presentation has been co-produced by Canadian music legend Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed) and set to a stirring original score by multi award-winning composer Phil Strong. The result is a deeply moving 22-minutes.

The open-air venue is wheelchair accessible and passers-by and art pilgrims alike will experience this urgent call to action, and search for hope through art. Click here for more information.
