The Salt of the Earth (2014)
Monday 17th August 2015
For the last 40 years acclaimed photographer Sebastião Salgado has travelled the world, tracing the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed and documented many of the major events of our times, taking in wars, famine, genocide and exodus. But now he is embarking on a new journey: to discover pristine territories, grandiose landscapes and wild nature as part of a huge photographic tribute to the planet's beauty.
Salgado's accomplished, moving work and his inspirational life are revealed to us in this Oscar-nominated documentary by his son, Juliano, and world-renowned filmmaker Wim Wenders, himself an avid photographer. Powerful, affecting and truly profound, it is not just a portrait of a great artist but one of life itself.
Nominated for best documentary at the 2015 Oscars, The Salt of the Earth is released on DVD and Blu-ray on 14th September 2015 courtesy of Artificial Eye.
