Holland, the Living Delta
A fascinating journey through Western Europe’s largest delta land, in all of its mystery, breadth and beauty.
Using cutting edge cinematic techniques ranging from eagle’s eye aerial views to unprecedented underwater scenes, HOLLAND, THE LIVING DELTA presents a portrait of the diverse wildlife of the Netherlands as never before seen. Capturing it at a time when new life is flooding back into the delta, the film explores this lush water world through the eyes of five main characters: the white tailed sea-eagle, the beaver, the hare, the stickleback and the large rare blue butterfly.
