Wim Wenders has been nominated for the Oscar in the Best Documentary of the Year category.

The Salt of the Earth, which is directed by Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, focusses on the work of the revered Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado.

For the last 40 years, Salgado has travelled the world witnessing and documenting international conflicts, starvation and exodus, and the film, narrated by Wenders, tells the story of his adventurous life.
