My Name Is Salt

Il mio nome è Sale
by Farida Pacha 2013 92'

Little Rannn of Kutch. 50,000 square km of saline wilderness in the north of the Gujarat region of India, a featureless expanse of flat land, devoid of trees, rocks or grass. Here, Sanabhai migrates with his family from his village, together with thousands of others like him, men and women who, since generations past and for generations still, farm salt for 8 months of the year from September to April. Without water, electricity or any amenities, they work till the monsoons arrive and the sea invades the salt desert, creating the whitest salt in the world.
