Silence of the Tides

Silence of the Tides

23rd TDF: Greek Premiere

A breathtaking cinematic portrait of the largest tidal wetlands in the world, the Wadden Sea. The film bears witness to the rough, yet fragile relationship between man and nature as it pulsates with the inhaling and exhaling of the tides. A mesmerizing gaze onto 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.
