My Name is Salt

13 Mar 201522 Mar 2015

A mesmerizing anthropological documentary in the vein of Le Quattro Volte and Manakamana, this assured, subtle film observes a remote community in rural India who toil yearly to farm the whitest salt in an area of inhospitable desert.

Deploying a remarkably simple style of filmmaking which manages to capture the rhythms and customs of a small society, My Name is Salt combines human observation with moments of astonishing natural beauty.

My Name is Salt, dir. Farida Pacha, Switzerland/India 2013, 92 mins., Gujarati with English subtitles.
