The Salt of the Earth

A Feature film by Wim Wenders, Juliano Ribeiro Salgado

Produced by Decia Films

Release in France : 15/10/2014


    During the last forty years, photographer Sebastião Salgado has been travelling through the continents, in the footsteps of an ever changing humanity. He has witnessed the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, famines, and exodus… He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of the wild fauna and flora, of grandiose landscapes: a huge photographic project which is a tribute to the planet's beauty.
    Sebastião's Salgado's life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, who accompanied him during his most recent journeys, and by Wim Wenders, also a photographer.
