About the film ‘The Breath of the Sea’
In the rhythm of ebb and flow, DER BREATH OF THE SEA tells of the Wadden Sea, of the people and nature that shape this extraordinary region. A collection of islands and communities stretches from Den Helder in the Netherlands over the East Frisian coasts to Skallingen in Denmark, each of which has its own character, its own peculiarities. But they all belong to the Wadden Sea, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site for 20 years.
Constantly changing light, fog and wind change the landscape and habitats of seals, crabs and flounder. The complex inland system, with its unique flora and fauna, holds innumerable stories and unique forms of life, the discovery of which THE BREATH OF THE SEA can be experienced. Sometimes the focus is on small details, sometimes on the big picture. Migratory birds and tourists that come and go every year, the change in the color of the mudflats and water and the fascinating change of tides are a repeating cycle. THE BREATH OF THE SEA is a poetic documentary film that shows a region full of contrasts. The Wadden Sea is characterized by silence and storm, life and death and of course by breathing in and out of the sea, the determining factor that governs everything. (Source: Distribution)
