På Kinomatisk, Brasiliansk aften 21. april, nevnte produsent Helene Hokland i sin innledning til 'Jordens salt' to bøker. Her er litt info og linker til bøkene:
'Inventing Peace' (Wim Wenders, Mary Zournazi / 2013) revolves around the question of how we look at the world, but do not see it when there is so much war, injustice, suffering and violence. What are the ethical and moral consequences of looking, but not seeing, and, most of all, what has become of the notion of peace in all this?
'Regarding the pain of other' (Susan Sontag / 2003) is a profound rethinking of the intersection of "news" art, and understanding in the contemporary depiction of war and disaster. She makes a fresh appraisal of the arguments about how pictures can inspire dissent, foster violence, or create apathy, evoking a long history of the representation of the pain of others.
