Silence of the Tides

A film that inhales and exhales along with the tides of the Wadden Sea as it explores the fragile relationship between man and nature.

A cinematic portrait of the largest tidal wetlands in the world, the Wadden Sea. The film plays witness to the rough yet fragile relationship between man and nature as it pulsates with the inhaling and exhaling of the tides. It's a hypnotizing large-screen look into the cycles and contrasts of the seasons: life and death, storm and silence, the masses and the individual. All set against a larger than life backdrop of sky, water, wind, mist and constantly changing light.
