The Salt of the Earth is Wim Wenders' documentary portrait of Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado, perhaps most famous for his mid-1980s shots of Brazil's biblically vast gold mines and their workers. Notably Salgado photographed the terrible Rwandan genocide of the '90s – after which horror he necessarily switched focus from military subjects to environmental activism instead. Wenders' masterful film fully exploits the supreme power of Salgado's stunning, almost sculptural black-and-white images, which have a profound impact when viewed on the big screen. This is a moving and life-affirming tribute to a singular creative talent.
