Salt in the Scars Excerpt (2009)
Excerpt from the short documentary Salt in the Scars.
The saltpans of Marakanam in South India. While following Reena, a woman who earns her living collecting sea salt,viewers are challenged to consider the important stakes involved in this simple seasoning. Conceived as a documentary without dialogue or voice‐over, the film alternates moments of silence and natural sound, minimalist music and uncluttered shots. Presented like a piece of polyphonic music, the day spent collecting sea salt points up the link between this ingredient, an essential part of life and a fundamental component in thousands of industrial and chemical products, and the work performed by human beings.
