The life and work of photographer Sebastião Salgado, who has spent forty years documenting deprived societies in hidden corners of the world.
The title of the film is a biblical reference, Matthew 5:13: 'You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.'
Sebastião Salgado - Photographer:
We are a ferocious animal. We humans are terrible animals. Our history is a history of wars. It's an endless story, a tale of madness.
