We were delighted to present the UK premiere of 2015 Academy Award Nominated The Salt of the Earth at our new Film Benefit venue, the British Museum. The Salt of the Earth is a mesmerising film that embarks the viewer on the journey of the photographer Sebastião Salgado, who for the last 40 years has been travelling through the continents in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity.

The screening was followed by a high-level panel discussion and Q&A. We heard the views of human rights activists, journalists and experts, moderated by David Mepham, UK Director of Human Rights Watch.
