Silence of the Tides is a cinematic portrait of the largest tidal wetlands in the world, the Wadden Sea. The film plays witness to the rough, yet fragile relationship between man and nature as it pulsates with the inhaling and exhaling of the tides. It’s a hypnotizing large screen look into 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.
With his observational style and cinematic eye for detail, director Pieter-Rim de Kroon presents the Wadden region as one massive, living breathing organism, where all the elements interlock, influenced by the position of the Moon and Sun, and the magical energy from the Cosmos.
The World Water Film Festival is a non-profit film festival for filmmakers and storytellers from all over the world to highlight human-water relationship issues and concerns that inspire an action step for the viewer beyond its entertainment and informative value. Silence of the Tides is one of the movies that are shown leading up to the 2023 UN Water Conference.
