Watermark is a feature documentary from multiple-award winning filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier, and renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky.  The film examines the relationship between mankind and water. The filmmakers travel to various locations around the world -- from deserts, to tanneries, to one of the biggest dams in the world -- to showcase how the liquid shapes people's lives, as well as how humanity affects this precious resource. The screening of Watermark is a free global cultural event and open to the public. (2013, Canada, 92 mins.)

Impaired Perceptions by Brian Steel
on display in the Lewandowski Student Gallery / McLaurin Hall
 * Artist Talk * -  5 pm - Dina’s Place / DiGiorgio Campus Center
 * Reception * - 6 pm -  Lewandowski Student Gallery / McLaurin Hall

To kick off Winthrop’s October celebration of Disability Month, guest speaker, Brian Charles Steel will be on campus to speak September 16, 2015 along with an installation of his photographic exhibit, Impaired Perceptions.  Born with short fiber syndrome, Steels’ black and white portraits of himself and other physically impaired people explores the concept of perception and socially constructed identity.  Some of his subjects have physical impairments that are not visible, which further challenges the notion that seeing is believing.
