Silence of the Tides

Silence of the Tides
dir. Pieter-Rim de Kroon/The Netherlands, Germany/2020/104 min.
Dolnośląskie Centrum Filmowe, sala Lalka

”Silence of the Tides” is a cinematic tribute to the Wadden Sea, the world’s largest, and most varied, uninterrupted intertidal area, extending along the coasts of the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. 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.
