Please join the Ventura Film Society on Thursday September 10 @ 7:15pm at the Century 10 Downtown Ventura for “The Salt Of The Earth”. German director Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Pina, Paris Texas, Wings of Desire) confirms his mastery of the documentary form in this stunning visual ode to the great Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado. Long recognized as one of the camera’s great artists, Sebastiao’s sculptural use of light and space is combined with a deep empathy for the human condition, resulting in richly complex black-and-white images that capture the dignity within every subject. For the last 40 years, Sebastiao has been travelling across continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. Sebastião Salgado’s life and work are revealed to us by Wenders and by the photographer’s son, co-director Juliano Ribeiro Salgado. The VFS is proud to present “The Salt Of The Earth”, the 8th of 12 films in our 2015 season. Advance tickets strongly suggested, available at www.venturafilmsociety.com/tickets.html and at the VFS Will Call table one hour before the screening.
