THE SALT OF THE EARTH

Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

The pos­si­bil­ity of a mega-drought in the South­west makes it rel­e­vant that we ac­quaint our­selves with the work of Se­bastião Sal­gado, a Brazil­ian pho­tog­ra­pher who is the sub­ject of this doc­u­men­tary, co-di­rected by Wim Wen­ders and Ju­liano Sal­gado, the pho­tog­ra­pher’s son. The el­der Sal­gado be­gan his ca­reer as an economist, but he soon re­al­ized that the pho­to­graphs he took with his wife’s cam­era on trips to Africa gave him more joy than the eco­nomic de­vel­op­ments re­ports he wrote. Rated PG-13. 110 min­utes. Vi­o­let Crown. (Priyanka Ku­mar)
