Salarium Daniel Mann, Sasha Litvintseva

Film index A to Z

The shores of the Dead Sea are riddled with cracks that make the terrain impassable. Where once there were settlements or beaches filled with tourists, now there is nothing but a forbidding desert. Cars roll by signs warning of the danger, and soldiers wander around unoccupied and impotent. Starting with “salt” – which shares the same linguistic roots as “salary” and “soldier” – the filmmakers mix geology and geopolitics as they explore a landscape on the verge of collapse, reflecting on the failures of the Promised Land: from Zionist colonialism, to the exploitation of nature to the breaking point. Alongside its breathtaking imagery, Salarium inserts politics where once we could only see indifference. (ACO)
