Life and work of photographer Sebastião Salgado

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 the major events of our recent history: international conflicts, starvations and exodus. Now he is embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of the wild fauna and flora, 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, director of Paris Texas, Der Himmel über Berlin and a photographer himself.

This film is to be viewed at any time from 22 to 29 May.

Based on these themesthe festival compiled a film programme that is and partly recommended by the associate artists. The programme can be viewed online for free prior to and during the festival.
