My name is salt

Switzerland 2013 reż. Farida Pacha 91 min

  • Director: Farida Pacha

We are in Little Rann of Kutch, a saline desert in India. The desert extends endlessly – flat, grey, relentless. There is only one thing in abundance: salt. It is everywhere, lying just beneath the cracked, baked surface of the earth. We are observing the work of Chhanabhai and his family live there without water, electricity or provisions. Under the blinding glare of the sun, they are tirelessly extracting salt from this desolate landscape. Their labour is rhythmic, a dance that mirrors the dance of the mirages on the burning horizon. After 8 months of hard work, the salt is ready to be harvested – just before the heavy monsoon rains will once again wash their salt fields away.
