THE SALT OF THE EARTH d. Wim Wenders & Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, 2014 presented by Highgate Film Society at Highgate Literary & Scientific Institution (24 MAR 20:00 – Followed by an Online discussion 25 MAR 17:00).
“The universally acclaimed THE SALT OF THE EARTH is a powerful testament to life and work of the Brazilian social-documentary photographer Sebastiao Salgado. Throughout his 40-year-long career Salgado – who self-describes as ‘a witness to the human condition’ – used his photographic projects to explore the social and economic circumstances in some 120 countries, illuminating to unforgettable effect how the environment and humans are exploited to maximise profit for the global economy. Co-directed by his son Juliano alongside Wim Wenders, the documentary allows Salgado space to reflect on and explain the background to some of his photographs, taking us on a journey from hope to despair to some kind of hope again.” (Highgate Film Society)
