The Salt of the Earth

saltoftheearthWim Wenders returned to documentaries after Pina (2011), which was a portrait of a famous dance choreographer. This film follows another impressive, passionate artist, renowned photographer SebastiĆ£o Salgado. Made together with Salgadoā€™s son as co-director, the film explains why the photographer made such an impression on Wenders ā€“ the manā€™s empathy for people shone through in his work. We journey to different continents and explore Salgadoā€™s compassion and history, always aided by his magnificent work that has people and events, beauty and horror frozen in time, from native peoples in South America and gorillas in Africa to the genocide in Rwanda and burning oil wells in Kuwait. An interesting, albeit somewhat unremarkable experience as a film.

2014-France-Brazil. 110 min. Color-B/W. Directed byĀ Wim Wenders, Juliano Ribeiro Salgado. Narrated byĀ Wim Wenders.
