Wim Wenders’ upcoming documentary “The Salt of the Earth” screened well at Cannes this year: the audience sprang to its feet and burst into applause after its premiere. Check out the first batch of clips: they’re beautiful, evocative and very Wenders-esque.
“The Salt of the Earth” focuses on Brazilian photographer and photojournalist Sebastião Salgado, whose work over the last 40 years has focused on social issues, exploring the challenges facing the Earth’s diverse–and dispersed–communities. Salgado has traveled to more than 100 countries, and in the last 10 years has shifted his attention to a project he calls “Genesis,” a series that focuses on documenting unspoiled nature and the human societies that live in such environments in accordance with ancestral and not modern conventions.
