8th February: Spilling Salt (Mexico/Bolivia/Spanish/2015/64mins) Dir. Natalia Armienta Oikawa. The film begins as a visual odyssey to the Bolivian salt flats, a place of lyrical and hypnotic beauty and silence. It then progresses into a compelling political essay about the consequences of very lucrative lithium mining that is beginning to threaten that natural beauty.
