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 Salgado, and world-renowned filmmaker Wim Wenders ('Buena Vista Social Club', 'Wings of Desire', 'Paris, Texas', 'Pina'), himself an avid photographer. Powerful, affecting and truly profound, 'The Salt of the Earth' is not just a portrait of a great artist but one of life itself. ★★★★ "This deeply considered documentary from Wim Wenders and the photographer’s son looks at the Brazilian artist behind monochrome images that transcend history itself" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Unmissable" - David Hughes, Empire
