Silence of the Tides
The passage of time is spellbinding in this cinematic tour de force about the Wadden Sea. A film that inhales and exhales along with the tides as it explores the fragile relationship between man and nature.
Shots from different times of day merge into each other almost imperceptibly, so a dry seabed magically changes into a rippling expanse of water. Sophisticated sound design and the interplay of light complete the wonder.
Military exercises, newborn lambs, mating oysters—all this life passes by without commentary. Over four seasons, the tides, people, and wildlife constantly come and go. A beautifully designed portrait of pulsating nature that invites viewers to find their own associations and meaning.
