Movie Info

For the last 40 years, the photographer Sebastião Salgado has been travelling through the continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project, which is a tribute to the planet's beauty. Sebastião Salgado's life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, who went with him during his last travels, and by Wim Wenders, himself a photographer. (C) Sony Classics

Review Stephen Carty, Radio Times

This evocative, Oscar-nominated documentary pays tribute to Sebastiao Salgado, the celebrated Brazilian photographer... He has witnessed his fair share of human suffering, having documented the devastating effects of starvation, poverty, war, displacement and genocide. As you might expect, the film is filled with images of his photographic work, which are accompanied by detailed commentary from the man himself... It is extremely moving in places, and some of the monochrome pictures are genuinely breathtaking. The Salt of the Earth certainly won't be for everyone, but it offers a haunting, reflective, thought-provoking portrait of a remarkable individual.
Rating: PG-13 (for thematic material including disturbing images of violence and human suffering, and for nudity) Genre: Documentary, Special Interest Directed:
