Ever wondered how, by sheer faith, you can build a forest? Sebastião Salgado did it. Literally.
The Photographer has spent forty years documenting deprived societies in hidden corners of the world. This is a movie about his life & work, but it is also about how everyone can make a difference in this world, starting with reflecting on the consequences of their actions. Because this is where real change can begins to happen!
Sebastião Salgado has been traveling through the continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation, and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project which is a tribute to the planet's beauty.
After the screening, there is room for questions and to have an open discussion. We will present some of the latest developments on the topic since the movie was published and look forward to hearing your opinions!
