Film THE SALT OF THE EARTH 2015-05-24 16:45:00
Description

THE SALT OF THE EARTH

Directors: Wim Wenders & Juliano Ribeiro Salgado;  France/Brazil/Italy, 2014, 110 min; French & Portuguese with subtitles

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE; BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE

“MESMERIC AND UNFORGETTABLE!” –The Playlist

“A moving tribute to a peerless talent.” –The Guardian

Wim Wenders’ mastery of the documentary form is again on display in this stunning visual ode to the photographer Sebastiao Salgado, co-directed by the shutterbug’s son Juliano Ribeiro Salgado. Long recognized as one of the camera’s great artists, Sebastiao’s sculptural use of light and space is combined with a deep empathy for the human condition, resulting in richly complex black-and-white images that capture the dignity within every subject. “Salt” guides the viewer on a visual odyssey through the photographer’s career. –Variety

Whether you're familiar with Salgado's name and work or not, this documentary will be a revelation.

It deals with two kinds of journeys the photographer made. The outward one may have literally taken him to the furthest corners of the Earth and resulted in the stunning images the film features, but it is the inward journey that paralleled it that completely holds our attention.

That's because Salgado, interviewed by an off-camera Wenders, turns out to be an articulate, thoughtful man whose tale of personal transformation changes the way we look at those photographs.

We also see Salgado at work in various ultra-remote spots, visiting with the Yali people of Papua New Guinea, the Zo'e of Brazil's Amazonia, even an island in the Arctic where the photographer literally rolls into position to snap some walruses. --Los Angeles Times

“ILLUMINATING AND UPLIFTING. Salgado’s lustrous photographs are truly a sight to behold on the big screen.”
