Wistful Wilderness (Weemoed & Wildernis)

Netherlands 2010, 88', Documentary, Director: Digna Sinke Dutch with English subtitles.

Tiengemeten, the smallest island in the Netherlands, is returned to nature. The dykes are broken down and the waters take back what mankind claimed with spiteful intransigence. Digna Sinke has followed nature’s reconquest with her camera for 13 years since 1997. Over this long period, nature has not just taken control of this small island, the unstoppable processes of life have also been at work in the filmmaker’s private life – her husband and her father die in the course of filming. Sinke mixes her private grief at the loss of these beloved individuals with the metamorphosis of the island and creates a moving ode to the circle of life.
