The Salt of the Earth
by Lorenzo Piccoli
Last week I watched one of the most uplifting movies I have ever seen – thanks to Giallu.
It is a documentary in three languages – Portuguese, English, French. It narrates the story of internationally-renowned Sebastião Salgado, a photographer who has been traveling through the continents and the time. It is a grandiose tale of human misery, creativity, brutality, and also a tribute to the planet’s beauty. These oxymorons are rendered with simple brutality.
Try to find the movie in the nearest cinema and watch it in its original language.
