  • 5 stars "Everyone should see this important movie. Visually breath taking."
  • 5 stars "Amazing documentary about one of the world's greatest photographers, Sebastiao Salgado. In-depth interviews with Mr. Salgado serve to add much to the already astounding work he has done in documenting social unrest and various aspects of the human condition- both struggles and triumphs. Anyone with even a passing interest in art, social causes, and especially photography owes it to themselves to see this beautiful film. A master at work; his images are simply astonishing."
