Salt and Fire

Part of the Herzog of the Month Season


Shot in the gigantic salt flats of Bolivia, Werner Herzog's peculiar eco-thriller is visually arresting, frequently baffling and distinctly laced with the director's immense fascination with the ebb and flow of mankind and nature. Starring Veronica Ferres and Gael García Bernal as a pair of UN ecologists who are kidnapped by a mysterious businessman (Michael Shannon), the story ultimately develops into a tale of impending disaster and catastrophe. Divisive among critics, Salt and Fire is emerging as something of a cult hit from the more recent years of Herzog's career.
