Storyline

SALT is the story of award winning and internationally renowned photographer, Murray Fredericks on his annual solo pilgrimage to the heart of Lake Eyre in the remote north corner of South Australia. It is a piece on the personal journey of the artist, the creative process and the landscape itself. Alone on the most featureless landscape on earth, Murray's personal video diary captures the beauty of this bleak, empty and desolate environment - and provides the catalyst for an unexpected personal transformation. Told with subtlety, care and gentle dry humor, SALT is the story of what emanates from emptiness. By combining the breathtaking imagery of this surreal landscape with the hauntingly delicate sounds of Aajinta's "Harmonic Sphere's, it attempts to identify what lies beneath the surface of our reality and how 'something' can be produced from 'nothing'. SALT interweaves Murray's sublime pictures, with innovative time-lapse sequences, and illuminating and exposing video diary ... Written by Michael Angus

Beautiful movie
24 February 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was absolutely incredible. It was a movie I had no expectation for, I thought it might be interesting in the least. It was so much more. The first thing and the major thing for me was a combination of both the cinematography and the photography. Take some incredible work on a camera, and then twist it in with this battler's life story, and you get quite a hectic movie.

The acting is real, it is a documentary, everything that happens, happens. Our friend takes us on a journey through his life. Amazing.

I almost feel a bit weird writing this, but in addition, the directors review available on the DVD when purchased is actually well worth the $$. The director and producer talk non-stop about the complexities of the film and how it was shot. Some of the insights they have I have never heard explained. Great stuff!
