Juliano Ribeiro Salgado

The Salt of the Earth (2014)

Famed Brazilian photojournalist Sebastião Salgado is profiled in this stunning documentary co-directed by arty German Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire). Since the 1970s Salgado has traveled the world documenting the lives of native peoples, migrant workers and displaced populations. After covering ethnic cleansing in Rwanda, however, his faith in humanity broke down--setting in motion a beautifully unexpected, late-in-life shift in perspective. The film is an emotional reminder that art can change the lives of people who make it as easily as the lives of people who view it. FULL REVIEW: Breathtaking photography forms backbone of life-changing biopic by Devin D. O’Leary (4/23/2015). 110 minutes PG-13.
