Nguyah: a Balinese Salt Farmer

Follow the story of Nyoman Warta and his wife, as they show the care they put into the traditional Balinese salt making process.

The practice of Balinese salt farming is becoming less and less common, and therefore is slowly disappearing. It is an honest practice, that takes heart and care, and those who do it put hours into extracting salt from the ocean. From creating tools from scratch, to selling the salt, the process takes days, and requires extremely hard work.
