Who Is Salt?
Similarly to the film The Fifth Estate, the movie Who Is Salt? also deals with the notion of the Military-Entertainment Complex. A collaboration between Hollywood and the Pentagon was revealed through email conversations found on IMDb and in the Sony Pictures hack of 2014 where the US State Department proposes a movie which would help stear public opinion and political narrative in favor of the US.
The movie Salt 2 is an example of this co-operation, and the conversations reveal that Angelina Jolie had allegedly long been dreaming of playing Martin Scorsese's Cleopatra and would be offered the role if she agreed to play Evelyn Salt, a CIA operative accused of being a Russian sleeper agent, once again. This is a moment of documentary photography where Källström-Fäldt have kept track of the the conversations that took place, and the rumors that flourished.
