My Name Is Salt
Documentary / Gujarati
A strikingly beautiful portrayal of an extraordinary world.
Every year, just after the monsoon season has finished, thousands of families travel to a bleak desert in Gujerat, India, where they will stay for the next eight months and extract salt from the earth, using the same painstaking, manual techniques as generations before them. Director Farida Pacha and cinematographer Lutz Konermann spent a season with one of these families, observing the very particular rhythms of their lives and crafting an exquisite, lyrical film in the process.
