COP21 : Film screening of ’The Salt of the Earth’ in Singapore
D-5 before the launch of COP21/UN Climate change conference from November 30 to December 11 in Paris: 7 European embassies (France, UK, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany) and the European Union Delegation in Singapore organized a screening of ’The Salt of the Earth’ (Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado) at The Projector theater, on Beach Road.
The screening was preceded by a debate between the Ambassador of France, Mr. Benjamin Dubertret and the Ambassador of the European Union, Mr Michael Pulch, and representatives of civil society (Energy Studies Institute, Youth Delegation COP20 / 350 Singapore, Green Future Solutions, WWF International). More than 200 people came to attend this event and share their perspectives on expectations ahead of the Paris Climate Conference.
The film ’The Salt of the Earth’ looks back on the career of Sebastião Salgado, a Brazilian-born photographer who then moved to France and has traveled the world for over 40 years. After photographing people on all continents and witnessed the greatest events of our time (conflicts, wars, exodus, starvation), he has been for the past ten years paying tribute to the Earth and to the flora and fauna it hosts.
