Trasfoco: The Salt Section

Because of salt

“In 1907 a village and a church were built in Cabo de Gata by the Acosta family, at the time the owners of Salinas de Almería, a salt extraction company. The purpose was to house the workers and their families”. So begins this unusual documentary in which the director explores the salt flats in which time seems to stand still. We can see huge mountains of salt, the houses of the salt workers and their aging inhabitants. All activity has ground to a halt, everything, that is, except conversations about past times. Meanwhile, the unstoppable corrosive effect of the salt continues unchecked: the materials, the bodies, everything gradually loses its strength and solidity.
