Summary
Year after year, Sanabhai brings his family to a seasonal saline desert in Gujarat India, where they harvest what they proudly proclaim to be the world's whitest salt, using the same painstaking, manual techniques as generations before them. Hardship and exploitation loom large in this film, but director Farida Pacha lets this speak for itself, instead fixing her gaze on the poetry and ritual of Sanabhai and his family's existence. Exquisite camerawork and a haunting score help Pacha expose the austere beauty of the subject..."A beautifully-crafted meditation on the grueling work of salt production. [...] Director Farida Pacha and her cinematographer Lutz Konermann manage to distill this process into something exquisite, a film crystalline in its austere purity, like the commodity of the title. [...] Every one of Konermann's shots is damn near perfectly composed and balanced."— Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter."Crisply sculpted out of found elements [...] it's a meditative, immersive picture of labour as an act of faith, made with striking flair and beauty."— Nick Bradshaw, Sight & Sound
