The life and work of Sebastião Salgado, the undisputed master of monumental photojournalism, is explored in this hauntingly beautiful documentary directed by his son, Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, and German filmmaker Wim Wenders (PINA, WINGS OF DESIRE). For the last 40 years, 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 and 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.
