Werner Herzog's 'Salt And Fire' to Premiere at Shanghai Film Festival
SALT AND FIRE is part of the official competition of the 19th edition of the Chinese fest. The premiere takes place on the 13th of June at the Shanghai Film Art Center in attendence of the direcotr Werner Herzog and the leading actress Veronica Ferres. Herzog’s nineteenth fictional feature, Salt and Fire is described as an environmentalist thriller. It follows a scientist and a corporate CEO who are forced to team up despite their ideological differences when a remote South American supervolcano begins to erupt. The movie was shot last year on the salt flats of Bolivia, a characteristically harsh Herzogian setting.
