festival & awards:
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.
