Join us for a zoom discussion of the film Salt of the Earth (2014), a riveting documentary about the Brazilian social photographer Sebastiao Salgado and his mission to document the destructive impact of unfettered industrial exploitation of natural resources and human relations from the late 1960s on, and his own recent efforts to regenerate the rain forest in his native land. The film is available for streaming on a number of platforms including Amazon Prime and YouTube (for rent or purchase). When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation.
