Salt Of The Earth
Filmfest 2014

German Age Rating

For the last forty years, photographer Sebastião Salgado has been travelling the continents in the footsteps of an ever changing humanity. He has witnessed the major events of our recent history: international conflicts, starvation and more than one 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 Salgado's life and work are brought to light for us by his son, Juliano, who accompanied him on his last journeys, and by Wim Wenders, a photographer himself...
