For the last 40 years, the celebrated Brazilian 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. In this documentary Sebastião Salgado’s life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, who went with him during his last travels, and by director Wim Wenders, himself a photographer.
This mesmerizing film was a nominee for Best Documentary Feature at the 2015 Academy Awards, and won the Special Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
