SXSW 2015 Video: Juliano Salgado on the Oscar-Nominated ‘The Salt of the Earth’
Every filmmaker comes to SXSW looking for an audience, some acclaim, and maybe even a few awards. Juliano Salgado has already found those things: his documentary The Salt of the Earth, about the life and adventures of his photographer father Sebastião Salgado, was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. The Salt of the Earth was co-directed by acclaimed filmmaker Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire), and tells the stories behind Salgado’s incredible journeys and pictures.
Juliano Salgado stopped by the DailyMotion Lounge to discuss the making of The Salt of the Earth, his relationship with his father, and what Sebastião Salgado’s work has to say about the major events of the 20th Century.
“For the last 40 years, the photographer Sebastião Salgado has been travelling through the continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project, which is a tribute to the planet’s beauty. Sebastião Salgado’s life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, who went with him during his last travels, and by Wim Wenders, himself a photographer.”
The Salt of the Earth arrives in theaters in Los Angeles and New York City on March 27, 2015, and will expend into theaters nationwide in April. Keep coming back to CraveOnline for more exclusive videos, reviews and interviews from SXSW 2015!
