India's Little Ran of Kutch desert seems to extend for eternity. There's not a tree or blade of grass in sight but for eight months of the year 40,000 men, women and children trek across India to scrape a living from this most unlikely place: harvesting salt. Filmmaker Farida Pacha follows one family as they attempt this seemingly impossible task. Under the blinding glare of the sun they work the land; the labour is a rhythmic dance that mirrors the dance of the mirages on the burning horizon. All this before the monsoon rains return and desert becomes ocean once more. My Name is Salt is a beautiful portrayal of an extraordinary world.
