Wim Wenders offers a glimpse into the life of Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado, who spent 40 years documenting international conflicts and devastated natural landscapes. In the process, he has witnessed pivotal events of recent decades - wars and their aftermath, famine, displacement and suffering. His impressive photo journalism has shaped the way we look at our world. To save his sanity, Salgado also focused his talents on a grand photographic project: Genesis. For almost a decade, Salgado dedicated his eye to pristine locations around the world - to the origins of life. A nobel homage to the beauty of our planet.
