SeasonKino Dreams - Wim Wenders Retrospective

Acclaimed photographer Sebastião Salgado's life and work is explored in this breathtaking Oscar-nominated documentary.

For the last 40 years, acclaimed photographer Sebastião Salgado has travelled the world, tracing the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed and documented many of the major events of our times, taking in wars, famine, genocide and exodus. But now he is embarking on a new journey: to discover pristine territories, grandiose landscapes and wild nature as part of a huge photographic tribute to the planet’s beauty.

Salgado’s accomplished, moving work and his inspirational life are revealed to us in this Oscar-nominated documentary by his son, Juliano Salgado, and world-renowned filmmaker Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Wings of Desire), himself an avid photographer. Powerful, affecting and truly profound, The Salt of the Earth is not just a portrait of a great artist but one of life itself.

Kino Dreams is the first UK retrospective of Wenders’ films in 15 years and the first chance for UK audiences to experience the 4K restorations of Wings of DesireThe American Friend and Kings of The Road in cinemas. The tour aims to introduce a new generation of film fans to the work of one of world cinema's most curious and creative filmmakers.
