Salt (12+)

Russia, 2020, colour, 38 min.
Director: Vladimir Eisner
Endless steppe scorched by the sun. Heat and wind. This is the Altai region, the border with Kazakhstan. Not so long ago, camel caravans went across these lands. They carried salt, which is essential for any lunch, breakfast or dinner. Now, instead of camels, trains run along the railroad tracks, and there is still the same salt in the carriages. The railroad tracks go straight into the lake. Some strange working machine is visible in the distance. The water is crimson. It seems that you are in another world ... Nature, ecology, man - how do they influence each other? How do nature and ecology change due to human activity? How do people survive in the changed conditions?
