Batcombe Film Society February screening

the next screening of the Batcombe film society will be on Friday 19th February.

‘The Salt Of The Earth’ – (dir. Wim Wenders and Juliano Salgado)   2014 / 110 mins / 12A  – is a moving but ultimately life-affirming documentary portrait of the Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado made by Wim Wenders and Salgado’s son, Juliano.

Salgado’s early years were spent on a Brazilian farm and he trained as an economist but took up photography after borrowing his wife’s camera.

In his career he has travelled the world undertaking a range of projects, recording war zones, tribesfolk, workers and has now turned to environmental activism.

The film showcases his work and includes some truly stunning and memorable images.

Batcombe Film Society is based at The Jubilee Hall, Batcombe (BA4 6HE). Doors open 7.15pm, screening 7.45pm. Licensed bar ~ tea and coffee ~ free parking ~ wheelchair access.
