Silence of the Tides is an intense cinematographic portrait in which the continuous 'breathing' of the Wadden area is central.

A film that breathes in and out with the tides of the World Heritage Site, one of the largest contiguous wetlands in the world, as it explores the fragile relationship between humans and nature. A hypnotic look at the cycles and contrasts of the seasons: life and death, storm and silence, the masses and the individual. A poetic contemplation without voice-overs or interviews against an overwhelming backdrop of sky, water, wind, fog and constantly changing light.

This screening is part of the three-day outdoor cinema from 26 - 28 August. Three summer film evenings, which take us to beautiful places, special stories and inspiring people. The films, with the beautiful setting by Loevestein in the background, offer us a look at nature, people and changes.
