A screening in the IMAX cinema of the Oscar-nominated documentary about celebrated photographer Sebastião Salgado, followed by a Q&A with Salgado himself.
For the last forty years, 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 in 'The Salt of the Earth' he embarks 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 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). Powerful, affecting and profound, The Salt of the Earth is not just a portrait of a great artist but one of life itself.
The screening will be followed by a conversation with Salgado, to discuss his work as a photographer documenting the Amazon and its indigenous peoples, and as founder of the Instituto Terra, who work to return to nature what decades of environmental degradation have destroyed.
