NEW TRAILER FOR THE SALT OF THE EARTH


It was one of the strongest surprises, for a select few Oscar watches, on the 15th of January to witness Julian Ribeiro Salgado and Wim Wenders' documentary The Salt of the Earth reap an Oscar nomination against heavy odds. Few pundits had been considering the film, a portrait of Salgado's photographer father Sebastian, despite excellent reviews and even a major award out of Cannes last year. The film will be released in the US on the 27th of March and in the UK on the 24th of April, by which stage we'll know if it's upset Citizenfour or not and won that Oscar.
