UCR Arts at Riverside–SONG OF SALT

February 4 @ 5:00 pm7:00 pm

UCR Arts–Set in an isolated mining town on the outskirts of Death Valley, SONG OF SALT is an immersive glimpse into the struggles and celebrations within a tight-knit community as its residents, suspended between the past and the future, face the present realities of an eroding economy.

A microcosm of contemporary American rurality, Trona, California demonstrates the complexities, hardships, and small beauties that are revealed when we look beyond prevailing stereotypes. Oscillating between dramatic stillness and wild freedom, patient observation and intimate immersion, the film goes on an engaging and dignified exploration of what it means to be both forgotten and free.
