This powerful film brings together art critic John Berger, author of WAYS OF SEEING, and world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado for a discussion about the power of photographic images to inform and inspire. As
they peruse Salgado's book, MIGRATIONS, a project that took him to 43 countries in order to document the experiences of people pushed from their homes and traditions to cities and their margins -- slums and streets and refugee camps, their intimate and wide-ranging conversation, intercut with Salgado's photographs, explores the deeper meanings of Salgado's images, addressing both their artistic and emotional qualities and their political function as a critique of globalization.
