Do you ever wonder where the salt on your table comes from? Every year thousands of families move to a desert in the Gujarat region of India to extract it from the burning earth. This beautifully shot film details the delicate cyclical nature of salt harvesting with incredible insight and restraint. This mesmerizing film deservedly walked away with Best Documentary at Edinburgh International Film Festival and won Best First Appearance Award at the International Documentary Film Festival, Amsterdam; the world’s largest documentary festival.


My Name is Salt has been selected for the FFR Best Film Competition 2015
