SONG OF SALT is a haunting yet hopeful dive into the heart of a small desert town on the wrong side of the American dream. Burned out, abandoned, and neglected, Trona, CA appears to be in its death throes, but, like in most deserts, life here takes on surprising and beautiful forms.
In an observational yet immersive style, SONG OF SALT will weave together a tapestry of characters that put a face to the complex issue of rural, post-industrial poverty. It will chronicle birthdays, baptisms, and bonfires, calling attention to the inherent human worth of a forgotten and degraded realm of American life.
