As soon as you’re done reading this, get your tickets here. This documentary is a must see for every human being, as it confronts us as a species with how we treat ourselves, each other, our planet and our fellow inhabitants here on Earth. There isn’t much more to say about it, other than that it has left us utterly speechless – and filled with inspiration. You have certainly seen Sebastião Salgado‘s work at some point in your life. He is renowned for the long-term projects he undertakes, devoting years at a time to documenting the story of a particular people or the evolution of a certain place. Go see. He has witnessed the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvations and exodus. Today he embarks on the discovery of pristine territories, of the wild fauna and flora as part of a photographic project which is a tribute to the planet’s beauty. Go see.
