Salt of the Earth – Virtual Panel Discussion

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).

The virtual discussion of the achievements and implications of Sebastiao Salgado’s life and work will be led by Professor Mark Ludak, Specialist Professor of Photography in the Art and Design Department; and Professor Randall Abate, the Rechnitz Family Endowed Chair of Marine and Environmental Law and Policy in the Department of Political Science and Sociology, and the Director of the Institute of Global Understanding.

When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation. GET MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO USE ZOOM
