Biopic 2014 110 mins

Director: Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado



For decades, the award-winning Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado has captured moving and illuminating images of humanity, from wars and famine to remote indigenous tribes and stunning landscapes. This Oscar-nominated documentary, created by his son Juliano Salgado and filmmaker Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club; Paris, Texas), is not only a portrait of the photographer as an eagle-eyed witness to humanity, but also an awe-inspiring tribute to planet Earth.

Nominated for Best Documentary at the 2015 Academy Awards and triple winner at Cannes the previous year, this is a profound and poignant film.
