Silence Of The Tides

  • 2020

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 alumnus (Dutch Light) Director Pieter-Rim de Kroon’s observational style and cinematic eye for detail presents a sumptuous film that is a feast for the eyes.
