Time and Tide

Tijd en tij

A seemingly quiet and picturesque landscape on the Dutch coast emerges as a battlefield where the elements of nature collide and the forces that lead the universe to entropy come into play, in an endless circle of destruction and rebirth. A poetic, contemplative, and breathtaking film essay, which was born of a two-year suspenseful observation and aims at breaking all painless stereotypes about the “neutral” representation of the natural environment.
