The Salt of the Earth (Wenders/Salgado, 2014): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 6pm


The awe-inspiring images of photographer Sebastião Salgado are celebrated by director Wim Wenders in this much-praised documentary. (Special guests are to be announced).

Here is the BFI Southbank preview:
The awe-inspiring and overwhelmingly beautiful images of Sebastião Salgado, the Brazilian photographer and former refugee, so captured the imagination of acclaimed director Wim Wenders that he teamed up with Salgado’s son Juliano to tell the story of this global wanderer’s life in this award-winning documentary. It’s presented to mark Refugee Week, a nationwide programme of arts, culture and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees and attempts to counter negative media and public perceptions of them.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
