Salero

Moises Chambi Yucra and his family stand at the crossroads of time. For generations, they have made a humble living harvesting salt from Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, but beneath Uyuni sit massive amounts of lithium, a mineral instrumental in powering smartphones and electric vehicles. With stunning cinematography that captures both the vibrancy and the solitude of the land and life, director Mike Plunkett poignantly portrays the final days of an age-old way of life.
