Silence of the Tides

No longer available

The Civic


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
