The Salt of the Earth

Famed German New Wave filmmaker Wim Wenders' The Salt of the Earth is a beautiful documentary assemblage of the life's work of Sebastiao Salgado, a globetrotting, Brazillian photographer who immersed himself with the overlooked poor to capture his spectacular imagery. Cowritten with the director by his son Juliano, the film gains added poignancy from the artist's haunting narration.
