“The Salt of the Earth”, the award-winning documentary on the photographer Sebastiao Salgado and his work is the first in the Sunshine Coast Arts Council’s Sunday series of documentary films. Once a month from February thru to May, we will be screening a documentary film focusing on a different aspect of the arts.
“The Salt of the Earth” (2014) directed by Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado was nominated for best documentary feature at the 2015 Academy Awards. It will be screened Feb.18, 10:30am, at the Arts Centre in Sechelt. Admission is by donation with a suggested donation of $10.
It is a moving testimony to the photographic work of Salgado causing Boyd van Hoei of the Hollywood Reporter to state “The Salt of the Earth doesn’t reveal so much as gracefully confirm that the empathy and humanism that make Salgado’s photojournalistic work so special are also a part of the artist’s outlook on life.”
At the completion of the film special guest speaker, anthropologist Pat Feindel, will be on hand to discuss the film. Submitted
