女科學家參與聯合國一個生態災害調查計畫,飛往南美洲進行研究。然而,當她與同行夥伴抵達烏尤尼鹽沼,旋即被神秘人綁票,分別帶往不同的地方。女科學家和兩名盲眼男孩單獨被拋棄在一片鹽漠中,朝夕相處下,她與男孩們逐漸培養情感,發現他們喪失視力的原因並不單純。隨著鄰近的巨大火山不時顯露噴發的跡象,他們必須合力避免災難發生,原來,綁匪想要的不只是贖金......靈感來自美國記者湯姆•畢賽爾(Tom Bissell)的短篇故事。韋納荷索表示此片關於人類面對自然災難的態度,認為要以行動取代恐懼,並特別引用馬丁路德對於生存問題的思考:「即便明天就是世界末日,我今天依然會種下蘋果樹」。
本片由荷索弟子卡特琳娜•蘇沃羅娃(Katerina Suvorova)出席映後座談。

A highly explosive ecological-triller inspired by a novella by Tom Bissell, Salt and Fire tells the story of a female scientist who travels together with her colleagues to Uyuni in Bolivia to investigate the volcanic Diablo Blanco disaster zone on behalf of the United Nations. But then she is kidnapped and left alone with two blind boys in the salt desert. She learns that the two boys, with whom she forms an emotion bond, have lost their eyesight due to environmental circumstances. As it turns out, her kidnappers have their own agenda regarding environmental protection......

Werner Herzog

1942年生,德國國寶級的電影導演,以偉大的創造力聞名,由其編導的電影多達七十餘部,獲獎無數,其中《天譴》、《陸上行舟》、《灰熊人》等作品除了深深影響楊德昌等導演,也廣受影迷喜愛地奉為經典之作。今年獲頒坎城影展終身成就獎。

As a child growing up in a remote valley in the Bavarian mountains, Germany, Werner Herzog did not even know of the existence of cinema until the age of 11. He made his first film at 19, and has since written,produced, and directed some 70 films and has acted in a few. He found the Rouge Film School where he offers an alternative approach to teaching the craft of filmmaking.
