The Salt of the Earth (Le Sel de la terre)

Rated PG-13 109 min. 2015



Wim Wenders’ documentary follows the storied career of Brazilian photo-documentarian Sebastião Salgado, who produced some of the most iconic images of the ’90s. It’s an intimate yet sweeping portrait of Salgado’s life and work. With the focus on craftsmanship you can almost forget that most of the photos show the ravages of war, drought and famine in developing nations. Films such as this are where the politics of a genre that self-conciously calls itself “international art cinema” meet the entrenched logic of colonialism: The world out there is a resource, ready to be mined and consumed.
