SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The Salt of the Earth is a Sony Pictures Classics release, runs for 109 minutes, is in French, Portuguese and English with English subtitles, and is MPAA Rated PG-13 for thematic material involving disturbing images of violence and human suffering, and for nudity.

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 premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. It was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 87th Academy Awards.

Wim Wenders was born in Düsseldorf in 1945. After two years of studying medicine and philosophy and a year-long stay in Paris as a painter, he attended the University of Television and Film in Munich from 1967 to 1970. One of the most important figures to emerge from the “New German Cinema” period in the 1970s, he was a founding member of the German film distributor Filmverlag der Autoren in 1971 and he established his own production company, Road Movies, in Berlin in 1975. Alongside directing atmospheric auteur films, Wenders works with the medium of photography, and his poignant images of desolate landscapes engage themes including memory, time and movement. Wim Wenders has published numerous books with essays and photographs. He is a founding member and president of the European Film Academy and member of the order Pour le Mérite. Currently he is teaching film as a professor at the University of Fine Arts of Hamburg. Win Wenders co-authored the book Inventing Peace with Mary Zournazi, published by I.B. Tauris, London. Wenders is currently in post-production with his upcoming 3D feature film EVERY THING WILL BE FINE, starring James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rachel McAdams. He lives in Berlin, together with his wife, photographer Donata Wenders.

Juliano Ribeiro Salgado was born in 1974 in Paris, where he grew up in a Franco-Brazilian environment. In 1996, he made his first documentary for Arte, Suzana, on the use of antipersonnel mines in Angola. Other documentaries followed, made in Ethiopia, Afghanistan and Brazil. At the same time, he made news reports for Canal+ in France and for TV Globo in Brazil. Salgado then entered the London Film School, from which he graduated in 2003. Juliano Ribeiro Salgado has made a number of short films and documentaries for French television. His 2009 film, “Nauru an Island adrift.”, made for the Grand Format documentary unit of Arte, was selected by numerous international festivals (Hot Docs in Toronto and Le Festival Dei Populo in Florence). He is now working on his first feature-length film that is to be filmed in Sáo Paolo, Brazil.

The film will be opening April 3 at:
• Landmark Clay in San Francisco
• Landmark Shattuck in Berkeley
• Regency Cinemas in San Rafael
• CineArts @ Palo Alto Square in Palo Alto
• Century 16 in Pleasant Hill
