This is an enchanting, poetic film about the largest tidal wetland in the world. With its glorious sunsets, diverse wildlife, and landscapes that change twice a day, the Wadden Sea has proven itself to be a photogenic place – yet never depicted as breathtakingly as it is here.
The driving force of the film is the breathing of the sea, the inhaling, and exhaling of the tides. It is a film of cycles involving the rolling life of flora and fauna, a film of contrast throughout the four seasons, life and death, storm and silence, the masses and the individual. All set against a backdrop of sky, water, wind, mist and constantly changing light.
Doc Edge alumni (Dutch Light), director de Kroon’s observational style and cinematic eye for detail present a sumptuous film that is a feast for the eyes.
"A magnificent nature experience portraying life along the Wadden Sea and lets the lyrical images speak for themselves" - CPH:DOX
